The Extraordinary Robert Goolrick Returns to Fountain with The Dying of the Light

Robert Goolrick is a dear friend of the store and his events are always celebrations of our very long relationship with his work.  We were one of the very first to recognize the beauty, power, and horror of his exceptional first book The End of the World As We Know It: Scenes from a Life.  Every trip he has made back to see us has left us with unforgettable memories.  Truly one of our favorite speakers, we hope you will join us in celebrating his latest literary achievement: The Dying of the Light: A Novel.  The tension in his books stretches tight as piano wire.  The storytelling is fast and lean while still being lyrical.  That's virtually impossible, y'all.  I hope you'll join us for this event.  Your time will be generously rewarded.  -Kelly Justice, owner of Fountain

In addition to his most recent novel, THE FALL OF PRINCES, Robert Goolrick is the author of three other books: THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT, a memoir; his first novel, A RELIABLE WIFE, with sales of more than one million copies; and his second novel, HEADING OUT TO WONDERFUL. He lives in Virginia.
