What People Are Saying

John Kinsella
"David Lynn is a technician of the first order. The skills he has already honed as a short fiction writer have been transformed into the writing of a novel of confrontation, style and grit. Lynn opens the dark spaces and skirts their edges with a piercing gaze. He fuses character and scene through an unintrusive language of clarity and precision. Constantly testing the boundaries of self and society, he questions the spiritual values we so often take for granted when engaging with fiction."
Amitav Ghosh
"In Wrestling with Gabriel David Lynn has achieved the near-impossible: he has written a taut, absorbing page-turner that tackles the important themes of politics and social responsibility. This novel signals the arrival of a major talent."
P.F. Kluge
"Offbeat and often gripping, David Lynn's Wrestling with Gabriel opens with two irreconcilably opposed accounts of the arrest of a labor organizer in Iowa. Was Gabriel Salter the victim of a frame-up? Or is he a sexual predator? Lynn's novel considers the possibilities, vigorously confronting mysteries that are solved and other mysteries that remain insolvable."
