New Book Features Stunning Tale About Peasants and Complexities of Multiple Themes
WAYNE, Pa., June 27, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Crossing the bridge to the past has its treasures. The life and culture of the 19th century return in vibrant fashion as Xlibris
proudly releases Kr (short for Karamazov Revisited)
, the compelling new psycho-drama novel from author Edward J. Murray.Kr
is an historical novel that takes place in Russia in the 1860s. It was a time there when the peasants were being liberated from the bondage of serfdom. The centerpiece of the novel is a dysfunctional family. Each member displays the extremes of several human emotions -- unbridled passions, immoderate spirituality, acute cynical intelligence, world-class corruption, and cast-in-stone bitterness. The reader will be quick to recognize that such emotions are very alive in twenty-first century America and the rest of the world. Although a good bit of the novel is dominated by the dark intemperate side of human emotions, the comical slips in with an appropriate dose as do the ordinary virtues -- prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude. It ends as a champion of hope, light and goodness.
