Blogcritics Gives Thumbs Up to Norris's Autumn Shadows in August
Wednesday, November 07, 2007  4:22:00 AM

by Robert W. Norris



Literary Fiction
Blogcritics Magazine has commended Robert W. Norris''s novel "Autumn Shadows in August." Reviewer Joanne D. Kiggins wrote:

"We meet main character David Thompson and his wife Kaori in an astounding and gripping prologue that forces the reader to turn the page to see what happens to the couple. Throughout the novel, Norris kept the same quick pace and gripping scenes.... [T]hose who have a taste for books with deep, intense, emotional, and soul-searching plots will find 'Autumn Shadows in August' a great read."

"Autumn Shadows in August" (Lulu Press) tells the story of an American expatriate who sets out with his Japanese wife on a journey to Europe to retrace a path from his adventurous youth and locate a German benefactor from the past. A trip through the Magic Theater, a sudden death, an encounter with Lowry's ghost, and a descent into the Capuchin Crypt in Rome combine to give David and Kaori a new appreciation for life and reconfirmation of their relationship.

Norris is also the author of "Looking for the Summer," the story of a Vietnam War conscientious objector's adventures and search for identity on the road from Paris to Calcutta in 1977; "Toraware," a novel about the obsessive relationship of three misfits from different cultural backgrounds in 1980s Kobe, Japan; and "The Many Roads to Japan," a novella used as a textbook in Japanese universities. He has written several articles on teaching English as a foreign language. He and his wife live near Fukuoka, Japan, where he is a professor at Fukuoka International University.
