Big Fish: A Novel of Mythic Proportions, Daniel Wallace. He could outrun anybody. He saved lives, tamed giants. Women loved him & he loved them back. Now, as he lies dying, Edward Bloom can't seem to stop telling jokes or the tall tales that have made him, in his son's eyes, an extraordinary man. The story of this man's life, told as a series of legends & myths. Through these tales, William begins to understand his elusive father's great feats, & his great failings.
“Daniel Wallace is a craftsman of the modern fairy tale and The Kings and Queens of Roam does not disappoint. The story follows the insular lives of two sisters—one blind and beautiful, the other able to see, but ugly—as they press against the edges of their small town. As with Big Fish and Mr. Sebastian and the Negro Magician, Daniel Wallace explores the nature of truth—it is not what is seen but what is believed.” Adie Smith, Lemuria Bookstore, Jackson, MS
