There’s a new book on the street. (And in the pink limo.) The Novelist, a novella that will teach you how to write fiction, even as you get lost in a story of one big challenge, an elusive cup of tea, and a ruminating poet’s attempt to break free.
“Hilarious protagonist, ” says one reader.
Says another, “Barkat seamlessly weaves a compelling plot with alluring poetry, truth with fiction, and even profound micro-studies in relationships and the writing craft.”
“One of those rare books you’ll finish but leave on the nightstand, ” notes author Darrelyn Saloom.
