Description

Brilliant scholar and wordsmith David Bentley Hart turns his mind and imagination to narrative fiction in this volume, The Devil and Pierre Gernet, a thought-provoking collection of four short stories and one novella. Anticipating questions about his shift in genre, Hart writes that -God is no more likely (and probably a good deal less likely) to be found in theology than in poetry and fiction.- These stories -- -The Devil and Pierre Gernet, - -The House of Apollo, - -A Voice from the Emerald World, - -The Ivory Gate, - and -The Other- -- beguile and entrance the reader through Hart's engrossing, opulent writing style and the complex characters he evokes and explores. Often bedazzling, sometimes heartbreaking, and ultimately mesmerizing, Hart's wide-ranging stories are united by a common thread of haunting religious and philosophical questions about this life and the next. Here is fiction to fully engage both the mind and the heart.
