Kevin Powers on The Black Snow
I am very pleased to share this blurb from Kevin Powers, author of Letter Composed During a Lull in the Fighting and the National Book Award shortlisted novel The Yellow Birds, in advance of THE BLACK SNOW’s release in the US.
Kevin says, “The Black Snow is a staggeringly beautiful book. Immensely powerful, but subtly so. I was mesmerized by it. I read it in one go, but I’ll go back to it for sure.”
Philipp Meyer, whose epic novel The Son was runner-up for last year’s Pulitzer Prize, called THE BLACK SNOW: “A brilliant, hypnotic book. You will lose yourself in the sounds and rhythms — Lynch makes the page sing like the old masters.”
Meanwhile, Ron Rash, author of Serena and The Cove, has said about the book: “Lynch establishes himself as one of his generation’s very finest novelists… The Black Snow is a dark, mesmerizing study in obsession, despair, and secrets too long held”.
