Days of Miracles and Wonders, The
An Epic of New World Disorder
Simon Louvish

5” x 8” • 448 pages
ISBN 9780704381148 • paperback • $16.00

The Days of Miracles and Wonders is Louvish's most ambitious novel to date, ranging across history's follies, past and present. From his tomb in Fontevraud, the Crusader King Richard the Lionheart rises to face the modern world at the brink of the West's Gulf War against Saddam Hussein of Iraq. It weaves a tangled web of East and West, of new crusades fought on prime time television, of medieval Caliphs springing to life, of madness and sanity in the "New World Order." Tragedy, comedy and farce intermingle in a tale of ordinary and extraordinary people, as the "smart bombs" of post-modern technology rush towards their apocalyptic tryst with Baghdad, the stubborn dreamland of the Arabian Nights.

It is a story as old as the Bible and the ancient Epic of Gilgamesh, and as modern as tomorrow morning's headlines.

Simon Louvish is the author of nine critically acclaimed novels, including The Silencer which is also published by Interlink. His definitive biography of W.C. Fields, Man on the Flying Trapeze, was recently published by W.W. Norton.

Media Reviews
This is a very important book by an extremely gifted author. It's too good to win the Booker Prize, but I'm sure Simon Louvish doesn't give a damn about that... -Literary Review (London)

"If Roth makes you laugh, Louvish will make you clutch your belly in hysterics. He is very very funny." -Daily Telegraph (London)
