Editorial Reviews:
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

Book Description: William Morrow, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: n. New with dust jacket, clean, tight, unmarked, (Fine with Fine Dust Jacket)() Spanning more than sixty years from the Civil War to the early 1920s, and moving from the battlefields of the South to New York City, through Paris, London, Constantinople, and Coney Island, The Notorious Dr. August features Augustus Fitzwilliam Boyd, alias Dr. August, an improvisational pianist who believes his music is sometimes inspired by the spirit world. He is in love with Isaac Kemp, an ex-slave who only sporadically returns his affections and who himself successfully woos Alice Pangborn, a rather prim white governess. The three, locked in a strange and often painful love triangle, travel the world--until a horrible tragedy forces them all to examine the choices they have made and shakes up their relationships in ways none of them could have predicted. Rich in historical detail and musical knowledge, The Notorious Dr. August is a brilliantly written exploration of race, class, spirituality, and sex All orders are shipped by Kbooks every business day using USPS Media Mail for American orders and Canada Post for Canada bound orders (from Toronto).
