I’m so pleased that I had a chance to review Geraldine Brooks’s new novel, The Secret Chord. Her body of work is of particular fascination to me–in each of her novels, there’s a boundless respect for the pre-modern consciousness, as well as a respect for the contradictions and paradoxes of all human beings’ lives. The only way to attempt a novel that depicts the life and relationships of a Biblical character like King David is to go for broke, and Brooks has done that. It’ll piss off some people, likely in useful ways. You can read my review at Chapter 16.
