david anthony durham

Coming out soon will be David Anthony Durham's 700 page novel about Hannibal, by which I do not mean a small town in Missouri. I mean mountain-climbing elephants. Durham made an unaccountably small splash in the literary world with his first two novels, Gabriel's Song and Walk Through Darkness, both dealing with African-Americans in the 19th Century. He's a better writer than Ed Jones, which is going some, and his first novels carried the brilliance and polish of very few novelists just starting out. I haven't had a look at Hannibal yet, but you'll see why I'm excited if you read Gabriel's Song and Walk Through Darkness. Prose to die for and a historical imagination matched only by Barry Unsworth and a few others.
Read this guy!

Mister Nouse is hardly ever off the mark: check out Star Publishers Weekly review, fiction forecasts, 10/18/04.
Wondering what Mister Nouse might think if he were willing to dig into one of Januarys/05, most accomplished novels, the powerful "The Society Of Others"written by William Nicholson? Just maybe we will get the Nouse's take, hopefully soon.

William Nicholson's marvelous new fable The Society of Others, puts him in the catagory of Tolkien, Pullman, and C.S. Lewis as childrens' fantasists who have found fantasy the most perfect vehicle for the expression of the deepest philosophical and religious feeling. The Society of Others is a thrilling if challenging read which should find readers of all sorts when it comes out this winter. Like Pullman he refuses to make his cosmology understandable one time through. This, of course, is the source of it's power and wonder.
