“A charming and chilling fable”: So says Fr. Richard John Neuhaus about Paul Lake’s new novel, Cry Wolf, released this weekend. You might know Paul’s name from the First Things’ poetry section, of which he is the editor and occasional contributor. Here, however, he steps into new literary pastures—Green Pastures Farm, to be precise—with an eerie and thought-provoking political fable, an Orwellian allegory for post-9/11 America. More to come in a future issue of FT, but for now, order your copy and let the summer reading begin.
