“The novel transports the reader to this tiny piece of the world and magnifies it through his extraordinary prose, leaving the reader moved in unexpected ways. David Hogan’s The Last Island is a wonderful gift to writing.”
– Marvin Minkler, Modern First Editions
“Hogan’s adept storytelling makes us ponder our spiritual essence.”
– The Greek Star
“Delivers an unforgettable experience you won’t get anywhere else.”
– The Reader and The Chef
“The pacing is brisk, the dialogue crisp, the imagery evocative, and the ideas and themes Hogan explores are timeless. This is a great story.”
‘The Last Island’ was the Number 1 bestseller at Amazon Australia this week, holding the No. 1 position in both ‘Literary Fiction’ and ‘Contemporary Fiction’ simultaneously.
In addition, as many of you know, the novel recently hit bestseller status in the United Kingdom as well.
Many thanks to my publisher, Betimes Books, for their ongoing support and to everyone who has helped spread the word.
In addition, in September, for those of you in Southern California, my short play, ‘Offline Daters,’ will be presented with some other short plays in an evening called ‘Legends,’ produced by the New Play Cafe.
I’ll provide more details as the opening date approaches.
Thanks again to all.
And for those who haven’t read it yet, the novel is available worldwide here: The Last Island.
I stared at the ceiling and thought that each of us has our own unshakable, fundamental truths that we cherish and from which all other thoughts and emotions derive. My own truths were passionless and simple: that this world is cruel and predatory, that human greed and selfishness are appropriate and, perhaps, even necessary responses – and that redemption is the delusion of fools. I thought I knew Kerryn’s truths as well: despite all she’d been through, she believed this world to be abundant and benevolent, a manifest and shining sanctuary meant to be shared by all its sentient creatures.
I wondered if we were both wrong . . . if we were both right.
