Van Gogh’s Ear by David Nash is a terrific novel that is full of thrills rooted in the dark side of the imagination. It’s a soul-rending account of love between two brothers that is full of swivels and sudden loping gaits.
David Nash’s vivid, graphic illustrations bring life to a most compelling story. His master’s degree in fiction serves him well as he demonstrates a very natural ability in riveting story telling.
According to Mr. Nash:
“As an author trying to address where and how my writing is born I can only say that I lean heavily on an unknown force in my head that, thus far, grants me access to broken and keleidoscopic images ranging far, deep, and wide in both conscious and (I assume) subconscious memory which I then try to revivify and assemble on paper with a hopeful and natural narrative weave.”
David Nash was born in Utah but he grew up living in Argentina, Arizona, California, Indiana, New York, Philippines and Taiwan.
He earned his master’s degree in fiction from the Arizona State University M.F.A. program. He is currently living in the City of New York where he teaches English composition, writes, attends Columbia University and tends his retired greyhounds.
His book Van Gogh’s Ear was published by Star Cloud Press, an independent press based in Arizona.
