In Good Hands



Florian C.A. Czech


A special thanks to Florian Czech for sharing this photo. Florian is the winner of our recent drawing for Copy #100 of my novel, A Listening Thing. As you can see, the book arrived safely and is in good hands in its new home in Austria.

For those of you who aren’t acquainted with Florian, I heartily recommend that you visit his blog, where he shows off many of his wonderful photographs. Fisch is a recent favorite of mine, but I urge you to spend some time in his archive, and in the various departments listed near the top of his page.

Thank you, Florian!

Good hands, indeed. Florian is a wonderful photographer and this photo is a perfect example of his quiet mastery - because anyone who holds your book in their hands faces a mirror and captures a moment of self-reflection - and cannot help but smile.

Well, that smile must be catching, because you should see the one I’m wearing now. I’m beginning to think we should launch a Caption of the Year Award and make your comment the first winner.

Oh my yes. Such photos are his soul captured frame by frame. A gift it is to see. Magnificent!

William Michaelian said...

Exactly. Thank you, Annie!

A master of photography..
With one glance!

And yes, about Two Tigers, her comments are always outstanding...

I agree, Monika. When Florian and Gabriella are about, there are always kindness and magic in the air. Thank you!

I'm glad the book is in Europe in that Stephen Monroe (the protagonist for those who haven't read the book) is the kind of American that doesn't get much exposure but who gets pushed aside by his louder, less introspective countrymen.

William Michaelian said...

Who, interestingly enough, are probably not the world’s greatest readers. Hmm. Stephen Monroe, an unwitting ambassador?

I thank you all so much! I feel happy with your so appreciative words! William and I thank you for this wonderful book!

THANK YOU!
