Feast days of fools bliver til Narrenes fest

Narrenes fest bliver den danske titel på James Lee Burkes næste roman på dansk, som skulle udkomme i begyndelsen af det nye år. Romanen er den tredje i rækken om den hærdede veteran fra korea-krigen og Texas-sherif, Hackberry Holland.

Her er hvad Miami Herald mente om bogen, da den udkom i USA i 2011:

“Riveting . . . Burke is creating an allegorical, almost Biblical setting here: The lost wander hopelessly in the desert, seeking revenge or redemption or some terrible mix of both. The moral center in all of this is Hackberry Holland, who feels old ‘in the way people feel old when they have more knowledge of the world than they need.’

He’s Burke’s most fascinating character, a man whose sense of justice has been shaken but not destroyed. Equally compelling is Pam Tibbs, the most no-nonsense woman in fictional law enforcement (‘Men often thought she was trying to be cute. They were mistaken’). The push-and-pull between the two is just one more of Burke’s thrilling examples of the mysteries of the human heart.”—The Miami Herald

Det lyder jo som herligt hårdkogte toner for enhver ægte James Lee Burke-fan :-)
