BLACK DIAMOND FALL
From the acclaimed author of CLARA'S HEART and CLOUDLAND comes a rich, literary mystery based and united by two real events that occurred at Middlebury College; the disappearance of a student during winter break; and the vandalism of the Robert Frost Homestead located on one of the outer campuses.
As Luke Flanders disappears, the Robert Frost house near the Middlebury campus is vandalized. And there seems to be a link between the two events that the police are determined to discover. Alternating points of view between Luc Flanders, Sam Solomon, Luc's mother, and detective Nick Jenkins, BLACK DIAMOND FALL races to a disturbing and astonishing conclusion in a lush, literary mystery that could only come from the mind of acclaimed author Joseph Olshan.
Joseph Olshan is the award-winning author of nine novels, the most recent of which, Cloudland (2012), was hailed by the New York Times: "Joseph Olshan has stepped up and hit one for the home team. The bracing clarity of his prose . . . observes the destructive impact [the] killings have on this isolated region."His critically acclaimed first novel, Clara's Heart, was the winner of the Times/Jonathan Cape Young Writers' Competition and subsequently the basis for a motion picture starring Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg. A former book reviewer for the Wall Street Journal, Olshan has written extensively for numerous publications including the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, the Times (London), the Washington Post, Harper's Bazaar, People magazine, and Entertainment Weekly. Once a professor of creative writing at New York University, Olshan currently lives in Vermont. His work has been translated into sixteen languages. He is fluent in French and Italian.
