Overlooked Calvin Baker
A great post from the always inventive, eminently book-worthy Maud Newton, the famed literary blogger – read it all but here’s a taste:
Calvin BakerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s strangely neglected Dominion is one of the books I admired most this year. I understand that a novel so allusive, in which invocations of myth abound and the richness of language recalls the King James, isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t going to appeal to everyone. But I look at some of the hyped-up claptrap that has critics pulling out their trumpets this year, and am amazed that a story this good hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t garnered so much as a review in a major newspaper.
