The School At Chartres

The School At Chartres

by David Manicom combines the intrigue of a thriller with the sophistication of a major international literary work reminiscent of A.S. Byatt. Set partly in 1990s Montreal and partly in medieval France, The School At Chartres is a long love-letter – the final letter – from the protagonist, John Wilson, to his lost love.

As exquisitely woven as a medieval tapestry, The School At Chartres will appeal to readers of literary mysteries, such as Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, and A.S. Byatt’s Possession.

The Burning Eaves

In his fourth collection of poems, David Manicom affirms his place as one of the most compelling poets writing in Canada today. The Burning Eaves, a mixture of shorter lyrics and longer sequences, is a meditation on the nature of language and the power of love.
