Product Description

Wieland, Brown's novel of authority misrepresented and authority imagined, is a terrifying account of the falliability of the human mind and, by extension, of democracy itself. Set in rural Pennsylvania in the years before the American Revolution, the book relates how a small community is disturbed by the intrusion of the mysterious Carwin, whose extraordinary verbal gifts cast doubt and dissension among them.
