The Island: Three Tales

by

The Island: Three Tales Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Herling's command of language is matched by an unblinking observation of his characters' stumbling progress toward salvation. Herling is the author of A World Apart.

Table of Contents

The island — the tower — the second coming.
