From the Publisher
Beloved author Wayne Johnston returns to the territory of his #1
national bestseller The Colony of Unrequited Dreams with
this sweeping tale of ambition, remorse and hope.
A World Elsewhere is an astounding work of literature with
all the hallmarks of Wayne Johnston''s most beloved and acclaimed
novels: outsiders yearning for acceptance, dreams that threaten to
overpower their makers, and unlikely romance. The beating heart of
this story is the touching relationship between a father and his
adopted son. This sweeping tale immerses us in St. John''s,
Princeton and North Carolina at the close of the 19th century.
Landish Druken is a formidable figure: broader than most doorways,
quick-witted and sharp-tongued. As a student at Princeton, he is
befriended by Padgett "Van" Vanderluyden, son of the wealthiest man
in America. Years later, when Landish and his son turn to Van for
help, he invites them to his self-constructed castle and pulls them
into his web of lies and deceit.
