Writers at Sonoma Present

Fiction Reading with Domenic Stansberry

7pm  Thursday, November 10
Art Gallery
Free and Open to the Public

Domenic Stansberry is an award-winning novelist known for his dark, innovative crime novels. His North Beach Mystery Series has won praise in The New York Times and other publications for its rich portrayal of the ethnic and political subcultures of San Francisco. An earlier novel, The Confession, received an Edgar Allan Poe Award for its controversial portrait of a Marin county psychologist accused of murdering his mistress. He is the author of nine novels and a collection of stories. Stansberry will be reading from his latest, The White Devil, which received a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly: “Edgar-winner Stansberry takes the reader on a wild ride in this exceptional noir . . . compelling reading.”

Other reviews: “Guardians of the literary canon, rejoice. Stansberry, borrowing freely from John Webster’s eponymous 1612 tragedy, proves that there’s plenty of life and death and nastiness in the classics . . . Perhaps the most surprising feature of this tour de force is its pervasive links to both Jacobean tragedy and contemporary Mediterranean noir. Who knew?” Kirkus Review. “Stansberry nails the sultry, decadent, and erotically charged tone with one perfectly placed hammer stroke after another.” Booklist, Bill Ott. “Freaking Incredible,” Crimespree Magazine.
