Newfoundland-Born Novelist Pulls the Curtain Back on Modern-Day Faith, Hope and Charity
Gail Picco will be signing copies of her debut novel, What the Enemy Thinks, on Sunday, September 13, from 2:00 to 3:30 pm the Twilingate Museum, Twillingate, Newfoundland).
In What the Enemy Thinks, Picco writes about a Toronto based, charity-marketing CEO, Beck Carnell, whose upbringing in Herring Neck, Newfoundland both haunts and comforts her as does battle with her own demons and her rivals in the competitive world of modern-day fundraising, a world where misery fuels fundraising opportunity.
Picco calls the book a dark comedy that explores the stage after heartbreak, the stickiness of childhood memories and how landscape forms identity. It has been designated an Editors Choice and Rising Star book by publisher, iUniverse.
Early reviews say:
“The book’s resilient cast will generate compassion as its characters confront the social and political challenges facing … charitable organizations.” (Kirkus Reviews)
