Sinopsis: The premier work by a bright new talent, Divining Rod is a searing novel that examines those passions that move us to desperation and violence. On a blistering July morning in Alabama, Sam Holladay jabs a gun into the heart of his neighbor, Simon Bell, and pulls the trigger. His neighbors wonder how this benevolent schooteacher could turn into a killer, but Sam knows this tragedy was inevitable. Through a series of flashbacks, a story of complicated love and tender emotions is unveiled, chronicling the blossoming romance between Sam's reckless young bride, Delia, and the lonely, hapless Simon, and bringing the action full circle to the heartbreaking events of that fateful summer day. Michael Knight's innovative first novel is a gem that shines with the promise of a brilliant career for one of America's most gifted young authors.

Biografía del autor: Michael Knight is the winner of a Henfield Foundation Award, Playboy magazine's 1996 college fiction contest, and was included in Scribner's Best of the Fiction Workshops Anthology for 1997. His stories have appeared in The Paris Review, Story, Virginia Quarterly Review, The Crescent Review, Shenandoah, and--most recently-- The New Yorker and Esquire. He is the author of the critically acclaimed Dogfight and Other Stories (Plume). He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Divining Rod is his first novel.
