Steven Galloway people.
The celebrated author of The Cellist of Sarajevo will be here on Wed., June 11th at 7pm to read from and discuss his new book, The Confabulist, which uses the life and sudden death of Harry Houdini to weave a tale of intrigue, love and illusion.
Galloway is the author of three novels, most recently The Cellist of Sarajevo, an international bestseller, called “the work of an expert” by The Guardian.
Here is what critics are saying about The Confabulist:
“Vancouver author Steven Galloway created literary magic with The Cellist of Sarajevo, the international bestseller recently chosen for community reads in Toronto and elsewhere. Now in his new novel, The Confabulist, Galloway makes magic again, this time of the literal, stage-show variety.” Marcia Kaye, The Toronto Star
“With his new novel The Confabulist, Vancouver writer Steven Galloway effortlessly blends history and fiction into a thrilling narrative that is as irresistible as it is subtly complex…Like the best illusionists, Galloway engages in significant prestidigitation in the telling of The Confabulist. While the novel thrills on a strictly narrative level, pushing the reader through as they wonder what will happen next, its construction is deceptively complex.” – Robert J. Wiersema, The Vancouver Sun
