Bring Me One of Everything
A NovelBook - 2012
A troubled writer, Alicia Purcell, has been commissioned to create the libretto for an opera about an anthropologist named Austin Hart, who earned fame in the 1950s for cutting down and bringing back to museums the largest remaining stand of totem poles in the world. They belonged to the Haida tribes who inhabit the Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia. Hart's subsequent suicide creates the mystery Alicia attempts to solve as she consults present-day tribe members, Hart's friends and family, and his personal journals.
