Giveaway: THE SECRET CHORD by Geraldine Brooks

Peeling away the myth to bring David to life in Second Iron Age Israel, Brooks traces the arc of his journey from obscurity to fame, from shepherd to soldier, from hero to traitor, from beloved king to murderous despot and into his remorseful and diminished dotage. Brooks’ primary narrator is David’s counselor and friend the prophet Natan who sets down the best and worst of David: the light and the dark, the betrayals, deaths, kindness, baseness, and soaring above all, the unparalleled music that he created.

THE SECRET CHORD provides new context for some of the best-known episodes of David’s life while also focusing on others, even more remarkable and emotionally intense, which have been neglected.  We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him—from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his mother, Nizevet, his wives Mikal, Avigail, and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his Lear-like old age and who will eventually be crowned King himself—but not without fratricide and treason.

    What a tremendous sounding book, and now I’ve got Leonard Cohen’s song running through my head. Oh well, could be worse on a Monday. I’d love to win a copy.
