    " This is an amazing story with an unusual writing style. Dark Southern. Reminds me of his favorite authors, Flannery O'Connor and William Faulkner. But I liked it more and more, and by the end, I loved it. "

About the Author

Mark Richard was born in Manhattan and grew up surrounded by potato fields, clams, and bluefish on eastern Long Island. After a year at the University of Freiburg in Germany with brief sojourns in Rome, Paris, and Lille, he returned to the United States and became a substitute teacher in the Boston Public School system. Shortly thereafter, while at UMass-Amherst, meaning to study political philosophy, he was seduced by the philosophy of language and linguistics. He was a professor in the philosophy department at Harvard before attaining his current position as professor and chair of philosophy at Tufts University.
