Acclaimed Montana author David James Duncan visits Elk River Books on Wednesday, Sept. 6 to read from and discuss his new novel, Sun House, which has been described as his magnum opus by editor and Hachette CEO Michael Pietsh.
In a letter to readers, Pietsh notes, “Sun House takes on some of the biggest topics fiction can engage with: faith, love, death, connecting with other people and the natural world, right living in a corrupted world. Its dramatis personae include restaurateurs, tech workers, nature guides, ranchers, musicians, scholars, actors, bankers, a Jesuit, and a heartbroken farmer, to name only a few. It’s funny, learned, sweet, wide open, and unapologetically hopeful.”
Duncan is the author of the novels The River Why and The Brothers K, the story collection River Teeth, the nonfiction collection and National Book Award finalist, My Story as Told by Water, and the best-selling collection of “churchless sermons,” God Laughs & Plays. His work has won numerous awards and honors. David lives on a charming little trout stream in Missoula, Montana, in accord with his late friend Jim Harrison’s advice to finish his life disguised as a creek.
