Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Mind-blowing… This isnt Smiths first tale of toxic and nihilistic obsession, but it is his most ravishing, painfully funny, and wildly mythic.” — Booklist (starred review)

“Smith is not only a spectacular stylist but also a visionary.” —Washington Post Book World

From Charlie Smith (Cheap Ticket to Heaven, Chimney Rock, Shine Hawk), author of three New York Times Notable Books and a literary stylist whose “writing can make the mountains ring" (New York Times Book Review), comes his first novel in more than a decade, Three Delays, which follows the troubled lives of two lovers as they combat their passions and each other. In the words of James Dickey, "Writers after Charlie Smith will have to take him into account, but I doubt if any will equal or surpass him."

Synopsis:

From Charlie Smith, author of five "New York Times" Notable Books, comes his first novel in 14 years, which follows the troubled lives of two lovers as they combat their passions and each other.

Synopsis:

Billy Brent and Alice Stephens are star-crossed like all great lovers. Their need for each other drives them from Istanbul to Miami, Venice to Mexico. After years of encounters and escapes, they lose themselves deep in a desert wilderness, searching for a way forward, only to learn that sometimes the trail simply forks.

From Charlie Smith, author of three New York Times Notable Books, comes his long-awaited new novel, his first in more than a decade. An exploration of the true particulars of obsession, Three Delays is a book of the spirit, of how broken people love and persist from darkness to darkness.
