Michael Malone is the literate and compassionate voice of the new American South. Critically acclaimed as one of the country's finest writers, his great gift for crafting remarkable and enduring comedies, as he did in Handling Sin, Dingley Falls and Foolscap, is matched only by his ability to deliver riveting suspense and mystery. Now, after a long absence, Michael Malone has returned to the scene of the crime. He has also come home to the South. He now lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina, with his wife, Maureen Quilligan, chair of the English department at Duke University.

Young drama professor Theo Ryan's life is turned upside down when he meets Joshua "Ford" Rexford-America's most acclaimed playwright and the most impossible and most talented man he's ever encountered.

I now have a new favorite writer. Foolscape is the first book of Michael Malone's that I have read,and if the rest are anything like it, I will have a delightful time exploring them, also.
This novel had a great opening of events and character progression, but soon found it fizzle as I followed the narrator with out his right hand man. Also the tone seemed to change in an awkward way that I felt didn't quite fit. It took me quite awhile to finish this book as I found myself losing touch with the characters and inevitably feigning interest.
