Book Synopsis


Land of the Sun, Land Without Light by David Michael Litwack
Aaron Hamblin is named executor of his older brother, Harrison’s (Harry’s), estate; and, in organizing Harry’s possessions, Aaron finds a kind of manuscript with sometimes jumbled notes describing Harry’s adventures overseas—and that Harry may have been an unwitting accomplice to misdirection and its outcome.

Harry Hamblin, a Peace Corps teacher in the Sahel, just on the edge of the Sahara, finds himself embroiled in a maelstrom in part of his own making. He has agreed to be “eyes and ears for an unnamed American agency.

He befriends the leader of a rebellion and, as a result, becomes the target of a National Militia Colonel. Both the rebel and Colonel use him to carry sometimes misleading messages to the opposition. He portrays himself as “…the perfect go-between. The perfect traitor. To both sides." Harry tries to massage these messages and engineer a truce, but, given the eventual futility of his best efforts, he learns he must take the only way out. Or should he?

Land of the Sun is to a great extent a bildungsroman by a narrator who writes in a humorous and self-deprecating style. Much of the drama (and humor) derives from intercultural differences and misunderstandings as well post colonial confusion. The cultural information is true and accurate. To a degree, But more importantly, I believe that I have used the power of imagination and knowledge to inform, entertain, and hopefully captivate the reader--to create this unusual and sometimes even unbelievable story.


Author Bio


Author David Michael Litwack
DAVID MICHAEL,Michael David (as Mother would have it—his parents couldn’t make up their minds) grew up on the Kansas/Missouri state-line. The tension deriving from his ambiguous naming and breeding location might explain the eclectic mix of folk, international, and country selections that he offers. He’s a wanna-be songwriter noted for, among others, Rock ‘n Roll Nation, El Wahid, and Leavin’ Sara Lee…or soon will be. In the meantime he writes kids’ books; he writes espionage novels; he writes technical stuff; and he romantically proffers his love only to Donna Lu.

  1. This appears like an excellent book as well as definitely one that plr content will take pleasure in. I bear in mind when saving a bat that had found its means into the dining room of the institution I worked at.
