One of the most exciting new voices in literature.
Zachary Lazar graduated from Brown University in 1990. He has been a Fellow at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and has received the James Michener/Copernicus Society Prize from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Lazar grew up in Colorado and now teaches at Hofstra University. Sway is his second novel.
"Lazar's hugely impressive achievement is to evoke the energy of an over-documented time in a new way... As dark and enigmatic as its central subjects, Sway often feels like a whole new genre of folklore fiction...it's irresistible" * Daily Mail * "Dark, intricate eulogy to the bloody death of Sixties idealism" * Esquire * "Lazar is a clever enough writer to let his juxtapositions and cross-cuts do the work: indeed his visual imagination pervades" * Times Literary Supplement * "Reveals Lazar to be a considerable talent" * Guardian * "Sway is a study of layers of manipulation and control: Manson over his credulous followers; the Stones over their audience; Anger's attempt to harness the forces of magic... Casts a haunting spell over the reader" * Daily Telegraph *
