A celebratory evening is at hand as novelist (and highly regarded sports columnist) Dave Boling sees his newest novel, The Lost History of Stars (Algonquin). Both his award-winning debut novel, Guernica, and this new one have been historically set, The Lost History of Stars during the Boer War.
“Dave Boling has a rare gift for finding humanity in historical fiction. His new novel, The Lost History of Stars, is another gripping tale about living in war’s barbaric shadow, and how moments of decency and heroism and glimpses of the natural world sustain us.” —Jess Walter.
“The Lost History of Stars is a heart-wrenching yet ultimately uplifting story of an extraordinary young woman and her family, who are forced to endure unimaginable hardship at the hands of a brutal war. Dave Boling’s brilliant novel is a meditation on the resiliency of the soul and the spirit, and will long be remembered.” —Garth Stein.
