Synopsis:

Christopher Bram tells the story of Augustus Fitzwilliam Boyd, alias Dr. August, a clairvoyant pianist who communes with ghosts, and who finds meaning in his life through a strange love triangle with a righteous ex-slave and nervous white governess.  Spanning the years between the Civil War and the early 1920's, this riveting and ambitious historical novel displays the immense talents of a prodigious, highly esteemed author working at the height of his powers.


Review:
"[A]lmost sinfully pleasurable....It's a testament to Bram's powers of imagination and restraint that DR. AUGUST will carry you swiftly from beginning to end, whether or not you recognize any of the literary influences. The real achievement of this book is to remind us of the sheer joy of story....Bram does something too few novels manage these days: He makes you forget your troubles for 500 pages and care passionately about what happens next."

Daniel Akst, San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, 07/02/2000

Review:
"[T]he book is impressive if read only as a history of popular entertainment from the mid-19th century until the 1920's. But Bram's research serves a higher purpose; despite Dr. August's forays into the realm of the spirits, the novel is about what it means to be a human being in a complicated world."

Paul Quarrington, New York Times Book Review, 09/03/2000
