Author/Artist Review

Author: David Sarles
Located in: Bayville, NY
Submitted: September 15, 2014

    Tell us a little about yourself.   For many years, I taught English and coached, in two schools with my wife as a colleague and sons in attendance. Summertime, I compete in distance running events and fish. I serve on the vestry and sing in our church choir.


    What was your motivation behind this project?   This was a family story, passed down by word of mouth. It now appears there are some records that give veracity to the experience, but this account is entirely a work of fiction.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?   The book can offer a glimpse into historical events and travel in mid-nineteenth century America.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?   Like the narrative journey in the book, I sought a purpose throughout the writing project. Now, it seems, the value was, as the narrator found, in doing the work itself.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?   The poets Donald Hall, Jane Kenyon, Seamus Heaney, Galway Kinnell; the authors Howard Fast, E.L. Doctorow, Dave Eggers, Michael Chabon; the composers Gershwin, Bernstein, Arvo Part and J.S. Bach; the painters Derain, Matisse, Cecilia Beaux, Homer; the instrumentalists Glenn Gould, Evelyn Glennie, Bela Fleck; the actors Meryl Streep, Robin Williams, Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:   Practice what you preach.
