Inhaltsangabe: From the acclaimed author of Simple Prayers, hailed by Thomas Keneally as "a work of magic (and) a journey of wonder, " comes the rich and captivating tale of an extraordinary father and son. Jean Pierre Michel Chernovsky is a paragon of the Gilded Age, a product of both Old World and New, and a collector of all things beautiful. Benjamin Chernovsky is his adopted orphan of the Depression, a boy whose remarkable beauty is flawed by a strawberry birthmark on his right cheek and throat and whose mind is blessed with a disturbing and miraculous gift. United by something more binding than blood, rivals for the affections of one indomitable and exotic woman, they will embark upon an odyssey filled with wild adventures and startling discoveries, a journey that will alter them -- and their century -- forever.
Über den Autor: Born and raised in Philadelphia and Miami, educated at Duke and Oxford, Michael Golding moved to New York in the eighties to pursue a career in the theatre. After several years of work Off-Broadway (including a season with the Lion Theatre Company on Theatre Row and playing Romeo in the Joseph Papp/Riverside Shakespeare Company production of Romeo and Juliet), he decided to move to Paris to begin writing. After a year in Paris, he travelled on to Venice, where both his son Joshua and his first novel, Simple Prayers, were born. He returned to America in the early nineties to receive his Masters Degree at the writing program at the University of California at Irvine, where he completed Simple Prayers and was the recipient of the Gellman Founders' Award. Simple Prayers was published by Warner Books in 1994, and has since been translated into Italian, German, Swedish, Danish, Japanese, Polish, Dutch, and Bulgarian. It is currently being developed as a film for Columbia Pictures, for which Michael has just finished writing the screenplay. He currently resides in Northern California, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, with his son. Benjamin's Gift is his second novel.
