Come and meet one of New Jersey's hottest new authors, Donald Gallinger, as he reads from his breakthrough novel, The Master Planets.
Donald Gallinger’s voice is unique in today’s fiction. He loves telling deliciously complex stories in the relentlessly spare yet lyrical prose that is becoming his trademark. Combining keen wit and a rare subtlety of insight into the human heart, Donald Gallinger’s writing is bold, profound, beautiful—and hugely entertaining. Here is what critics are saying about The Master Planets:
“A magnificent, mysterious book…. Unforgettable.”
— Award-winning author, Thomas Perry
“A sleek, absorbing narrative…. An unusual plot given bravura treatment.”
“With its smooth shifts from the balmy Jersey shores to the frozen Polish forests, this intriguing tale reads like a movie in embryo.”
— Foreword Magazine
“A remarkable book… a whirlwind ride in which we see extraordinary connections... a dazzler.”
—Ted Chapin, author, Everything was Possible
Chairman of the Board, American Theatre Wing (Tony awards)
