Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for Dingley Falls

Witty, intelligent, deeply felt, and vividly narrated.

-New York Times Book Review

A wonderous achievement. Malone's novel is as lusty, whimsical, tragic- even as bizarre-as life itself. It is a triumph of the highest order.

-Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Dingley Fallsis a wonderful novel, impressive in every way and constantly entertaining. Everything in this book sparkles and rings true.

-Chicago Tribune

If not the Great American Novel...Dingley Fallsis surely the Great American Comedy. The two may just be synonymous.

-St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A lovable, sprawling, old-fashioned kind of novel, full of energy and gems of characterization.

-Washington Post Book World

In Dingley Falls, Malone has produced a remarkable work of fiction...He combines humor, compassion, and literate writing with a storytelling ability that is rare in contemporary fiction.

-Houston Chronicle

One day your small town is quietly its normal self, humming along in comforting consistency. And then-all of a sudden-strange lights are coming from the forest.

Not to mention the odd rash of hate mail popping up. And in all honesty, what is with these odd pairings of couples suddenly coming together?

Welcome to Dingley Falls, where the only thing certain is that life will never be the same. Spend a week in Dingley Falls, and once you've visited, it will be a place you'll never forget.

From New York Times bestselling author Michael Malone, Dingley Fallsis a triumph of rollicking joy and masterful storytelling.

Synopsis:

"In melodramas there are heroes to unveil the villain; in Dingley Falls there are only people like the rest of us."

Synopsis:

One day your small town is quietly its normal self, humming along in comforting consistency. And then-all of a sudden-strange lights are coming from the forest.

Synopsis:

In the sleepy town of Dingley Falls, Connecticut, something funny is going on. Strange forces are pulling together the oddest of couples: a mild-mannered matron and a lascivious avant-garde poet; a sleek headmaster and a shy young curate; a hippie librarian and the wayward daughter of a local tycoon. What's more, mailboxes are being stuffed with shockingly violent hate letters, even as a mysterious ailment takes the lives of perfectly healthy people. Not to mention the strange lights flashing in the depths of the forest

With a sparkling range of characters who hurtle through an intricate and often hilarious journey, Michael Malone offers a sublime joyride in his classic novel.
