What the Shadow Told Me
What happens when America's greatest author dies before delivering the long-awaited sequel to the greatest novel of the 20th century? His young editor is left racing to find the missing manuscript before a rogue's gallery of opportunists can exploit it for their own devious purposes. That's the premise of Kurtis Davidson's hilarious new novel, What the Shadow Told Me. This engaging look into the world of publishing and literature is intriguingly suspenseful, outrageously humorous, and universally accessible.
Kurtis Davidson is the pen name of Kurt Jose Ayau and David Rachels. They have collaborated on stories, essays, screenplays, and a catalog of 1001 opening sentences for stories and novels as yet unwritten. Ayau and Rachels teach at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia.
. . . viciously, irreverently, sometimes obscenely funny.
—Julia Glass, National Book Award Winner for Three Junes
Like a couple of old-timey buffalo hunters, the satirical authors slaughter a whole stampeding herd of clichés and sacred cows . . .
—George Garrett, Guggenheim Fellow and author of Good as a Gold Watch
