Daniel Boone lives again in the USA



Alix Hawley's All True Not a Lie in It out in the US on August 9th

“I am so glad this novel will be published in the U.S. later in 2016, as it gets inside the mind of one of America's most enduring pioneer folk heroes and strips him bare. Early pioneer Daniel Boone is mostly known for his coonskin cap, but in Hawley's version he is a peculiar man with a habit of leaving his family to go hunting and taking years to return. Hawley writes about Boone's relationship with Native Americans and with the harsh landscape he survives in a manner both dreamlike and enthralling.”
— TRACY CHEVALIER, author of Girl With a Pearl Earring

All True Not a Lie In It, by Alix Hawley

“Alix Hawley has written a boldly original, mysterious, and provocative novel-the demythologizing of an American icon (Daniel Boone) and his reinvention as a figure of poetic luminosity. She is Cormac McCarthy's young heiress, with a light and forgiving heart.”— JOYCE CAROL OATES

“This rich and wonderful novel imagines us so deeply into the mind of Daniel Boone that the stuff of his legend—the explorations, the conquests, the super-athlete woodsman feats—seem almost incidental to the soul-twisting trajectory of his intimate life. Family, love and loss, the longing for home, the intensity with which Boone lived these dramas help to explain the superhuman drive of this man, and Alix Hawley brilliantly renders every aspect of his story.”
— BEN FOUNTAIN, author of
Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

“A stunning debut that will stand the test of time. Hawley's book is a deep dive into the character and mindset of one of the most legendary figures of the American Frontier. Though it is accurate down to the smallest detail-every page reads as shimmeringly, intensely real-the novel wears its historical mantle lightly. It is stylistically and psychologically brilliant, truly a great novel.”
— PHILIPP MEYER, author of
The Son
