About the Author
Praise For New Light…
“New Light is a lively, intelligent piece of fiction. It offers a reader an interesting and insightful excursion into the world of contemporary American utopian/communal life. It is a story that is both intriguing in itself and one that also stands in the American line of fiction about utopian experiments. The main character is sympathetic and engaging, and tells the story in a fluent and compelling way. New Light is a romance that works on a number of levels, from the literal interaction of the main character and her new friend Houdini to that of the social and historical and philosophical matters conjured by her tale. The scenes move along with buoyancy and an expert sense of pacing. Clearly Gilson is a professionally mature writer who holds to high standards of craft and art.” — Alan Cheuse
