Need to Know: David McConnell
By Noah Michelson
David McConnell just released his new novel, The Silver Hearted, to rave reviews including this excellent blurb from Edmund White:
The Silver Hearted is our Heart of Darkness. It is just as ominous, as violent, as exotic, as darkly colonial. But it is a lot better written than Conrad's book. Whereas Conrad is always resorting to "the unspeakable," McConnell tells us everything in glowing detail and in fresh, eloquent language. Sexy, demonic, elusive, The Silver Hearted is a perfect work of art.
Alyson Books caught up with McConnell to chat about writing the book, gay literature and more:
