STEPHEN FINUCAN'S THE FALLEN

 

A review in The Toronto Star describes Stephen Finucan's "formidable job" in The Fallen:

" ... The Fallen feels broad and ambitious – but never overarchingly so, which is why it works so well. Finucan, who has previously published two story collections, has done his homework on a compelling period in history, but he wisely resists any temptation to flaunt it."

THE WORK OF DAVID ADAMS RICHARDS AND GOD IS.

 

 

 

 

God Is. by David Adams Richards was published last week by Doubleday Canada and received some thoughtful reviews over the weekend, many of them reflecting on the author's previous novels:

"As a storyteller, he has a better ear for speech patterns, a better eye for details of dress and manners, and a more realistic feeling for the effects of physical and emotional deprivation than any contemporary" -- The Globe and Mail 

"Author David Adams Richards is regarded as a rare voice of moral and spiritual certainty in the Canadian literary scene, rejecting the postmodern ambiguities of most of his fellow novelists and earning comparisons to Hardy, Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy" -- The Toronto Star

"Richards has a knack for surprising fans with the unexpected, but his latest book is like a bolt from the blue" -- The Telegraph-Journal 

"David Adams Richards holds a peculiar place in Canada’s literary pantheon. Going by honours and recognition, he’s an insider’s insider ... But in just about everything truly important he’s as outside the tent as can be" -- Macleans

"A gut-wrenching psychological journey into his own heart" -- The Vancouver Sun

Read an excerpt of the book in The Globe and Mail.
