Marly: [A novella in one voice]
November 6, 2015
Dede Cummings the savvy publisher at GreenWritersPress in Vermont whispers to this blog a few items about one on her new author's novels:
Peter Gould — who is a playwright, a novelist, a Shakespearean scholar, a director,and an all-around literary provocateur — is one of the most fearless writers alive. With his novela titled Marly, he has taken on an urgent subject, NO LESS THAN SAVING THE EARTH, with brassy humor, verbal pyrotechnics, and dialogue so vivid, it’s as if a reader is standing right next to the characters as they philosophically riff, fling ideas back and forth, flirt and light up with moods and opinions.
He gets to the souls of the young with intuitive genius. Gould is the dramaturge of our wordly problems and sense of wondrous possibility — he is a literary treasure.
