David Adams Richards
This new collection of essays — his first in a quarter-century — is rich with revelations and insights, deepening our appreciation for this major talent and offering a provoking thought on every page.
Murder is one of David's great subjects. In his novels, in the Russian classics he loves and in his life, murder has been a shaping force. The title of this volume refers to a suite of essays on the subject: a hitchhiker with whom David strikes up an unnerving philosophical debate; the killers of the Miramichi and their victims; Caligula; the villains of Russian literature; and, forever in David's mind as he examines this grim topic, the self-deception involved in the allure of evil.

Murder will be available in Oct. 2019.
