Ben Fountain on All True
My US publisher and I are extra delighted to have a jacket quote for All True from the terrific Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk (you can see the Ang Lee-directed film version this November!). Here's what he says:
"This rich and wonderful novel imagines us so deeply into the mind of Daniel Boone that the stuff of his legend--the explorations, the conquests, the super-athlete woodsman feats--seem almost incidental to the soul-twisting trajectory of his intimate life. Family, love and loss, the longing for home, the intensity with which Boone lived these dramas help to explain the superhuman drive of this man, and Alix Hawley brilliantly renders every aspect of his story."
Time for more drinks, no?
