From The Book of Samson: "This is the story of my life, and it's not a happy one. If you wish to read about me, you're welcome to, but if you're looking for something to give you hope and joy, comfort and inspiration, then you had best leave off here straightaway and go find something else. My life has an abundance of frustration and pain, plus a fair bit of sex and lots of killing and broken bones, but it's got precious little hope and joy, comfort and inspiration. It's got some women in it, too, plus a wife. Dalila is the one you may have heard of, and a rare piece of work she was. You may think you know the story, but believe me, there's more."From the author of the acclaimed and provocative novels Fallen and The Preservationist comes a tale about a man who believes he is touched by the hand of God then instructed by that God to slaughter his enemies. It is the story of "this worldly existence of men and brutes, desire and unkindness" and of the woman, Dalila, at the center of it all. In The Book of Samson, David Maine has created an unforgettable portrait of the Biblical figure, a unique and astonishing masterpiece that puts a face on a previously faceless icon.
"Wildly pleasurable." (Publishers Weekly)
