Review of "The Day of the Knights" . . .

Western North Carolina Award-Winning Writer Jack Joseph Prather’s

 

Modern Epic Novel The Day of the Knights Released by PublishAmerica

 

Fourth Book by New York Native Praised by Early Amazon.com Readers

 

By Pamela Ludlam

June 3, 2009 PG News Service

 

   The Day of the Knights, a 426-page modern epic novel that pits the evil of Italian savant Domenico Patriani, a homophobic religious-fanatic serial killer who manages to become a church deacon, versus the good of inner-city American Thomas “Tank” Tooley, an investigative reporter and volunteer firefighter who becomes a hero of 9/11, has been released by PublishAmerica. 

 

   In-depth sub-stories of key Patriani and Tooley family members lend tender balance to the savagery and provide insights into how the characters and moral-compasses of the evil Domenico and the noble Tank were forged.

 

   Early readers have posted positive reviews of Prather’s fourth book and first novel on Amazon.com, on the author’s website www.jackjosephprather.com, on Flipkart.com, and numerous other sites. 

 

   The western North Carolina resident, a multiple award winning writer, poet and journalist, has won numerous writing and editing awards, including Best Column in All Divisions from the New Jersey Press Association, the Award of Distinction from the National Communicators, and magazine honors from Explorer, Lifeglow, Prolific Writer and Listen.   

 

   Prather previously authored Speaking Up in Poetry & Prose (PublishAmerica, 2007), which is featured at the Carl Sandburg National Historic Site where his Sandburg Homage is on display.  The 50 pieces explore societal, life, religious and political issues important to all 21st-century Americans.  The cover features the Statue of Liberty with a tear in her eye, which speaks loudly to the content.

 

   Prather also wrote the comprehensive guidebook All PR is Local (Amazon-Booksurge) in 2002, reprinted in 2004, and The Public Relations Bluebook (SW Press) in 1981, reprinted in 1986.  As a public relations strategist, he represented U.S. Congressmen, State Legislators, and dozens of diverse clients, including the 1993 Small Business winner of the Malcolm Baldrige National Total Quality Award honored by Presented Clinton in Washington D.C.
