Description

Now in his nineties and still writing as beautifully and dangerously and originally as ever, John Sanford is an American literary treasure - simply one of our most talented authors. A keen and incisive observation on the perilous and hilarious, absurd and appalling, Intruders in Paradise takes on the influential personalities that history has strewn across the Americas over the centuries and gives them their unfettered due. From Francisco Pizarro's chaplain, Valverde, to J. Edgar Hoover in a fetching frock; from the poignant voice of someone drowned on the Lusitania to the creative musings of Andy Warhol - Sanford burrows, as no other writer has, into the very souls of these quintessential characters and with his words engages them, powering them to vigorous and palpable life.show more
