The Secret Chord: One on One with Geraldine Brooks

The bible’s David is so well-known that he’s become a part of our culture – i.e. we often hear of David vs. Goliath battles in news headlines. But, in Pulitzer prize winning author Geraldine Brooks’ new novel, we see a different side of the harp-playing shepherd turned influential king. His advisor, the prophet Nathan, serves as the narrator to tell us about David’s conflicts on and off the battlefield. We hear from his wives for the first time and learn about his relationship with Jonathan. Critics say it’s her most ambitious and masterful novel yet.
