Reviewed – in good time for Christmas – by our very own Barbara Hudson:
Strongly recommend ‘The Devil and Daniel Silverman’ by Theodore Roszak (Leapfrog Press). The blurb says ‘a wickedly funny novel about an outraged liberal trapped in a fundamentalist bible college.’ I’d thoroughly agree with that. The book is also scholarly and profound, I think. The hero is a gay non-believing Jew who happens to have a black partner and believes in a woman’s right to choose. The fundamentalists are a hilariously creepy lot and poor Daniel gets stuck among them because of a snowstorm that isolates their campus. They think he is the devil incarnate.
