Joseph Olshan | Black Diamond Fall

j olshamThat Luc Flanders vanished after a game of pond hockey is not in dispute. He could have gone off-grid by choice. He might have been the victim of foul play. His secret relationship with an older man may have played a role in his disappearance. But how could any of those possibilities connect with the vandalisation of a great poet’s home?

Joseph Olshan, award-winning author of eleven novels, including Black Diamond Fall and Cloudland, has written extensively for newspapers and magazines, contributed book reviews to the Wall Street Journal, and taught creative writing at NYU for six years. His work has been translated into sixteen languages. He is the publisher of Delphinium Books and spends most of the year in Vermont.

“Joseph Olshan has stepped up and hit one for the home team. The bracing clarity of his prose…observes the destructive impact [the] killings have on this isolated region.” –Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review
