Has Anyone Read?….

Has anyone read either ‘The Sage And The Scarecrow’, or ‘The Lexical Funk’, both written by a young Florida born author, called Daniel Clausen?

It was a chance meeting, when Daniel followed me on ‘Twitter’, and to satisfy my curiosity before accepting him and following him in return, I checked out his site.

Floridian, Daniel, earned his degree in English and American Studies, from the University of Miami, with further graduate studies in International Relations and Public Policy.

He has  wanted to be a writer fom an early age, and to help him achieve his goal, he has held down a diverse range of jobs, to support his series of published stories and articles.

In the background , he has diligently been working on and had published, two books. ‘The Sage And The Scarecrow’, is the novel that attracted my attention and helped in my decision to highlight Daniel as an author waiting in the wings for recognition, whilst ‘The Lexical Funk’ is a morph of a previous book, started at college and is a collection of short stories and random musings.

Synopsis: – ‘The Sage And The Scarecrow’

Six months after his father has died from cancer, Pierce Williams finds himself in a deep state of depression. The book follows him through a journey from his college, where everything seems dismal and empty, to a small town on the east coast of Florida to find his best friend, Jennifer, and the only person he thinks can “cure” him. Touching on themes such as the existential pain of thinking too much, love, and the politics of everyday life, Pierce’s journey takes him through the struggles and boredom of college life, as he attempts to discover his place in the world.

He is currently working on a second novel, ‘The Ghosts Of Nagasaki, which ties in with his three years as an ESL teacher in Japan and his love of speaking and reading Japanese, as a spare time hobby.

I hope to read ‘The Sage And The Scarecrow’ very soon, but if anyone else out there has beaten me to it, your comments and views would be appreciated.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Hey Yvonne,

    I’m reading The Sage and The Scarecrow now, enjoying it. Glad I came across Daniel and his work, he seems to be one talented fellow. I love the main character: a deep thinker, likes to reflect (a lot), like the author I imagine. Hope to finish it pretty soon.

    • Hi Jazzmine,
      Thanks for the feedback, ‘The Sage And The Scarecrow’ is definitely one book I shall be keeping a good lookout for. Daniel is one author that I think will go far and I am really glad that he decided to follow me on ‘Twitter’, or I may never have got to hear of him.
