Charles Gershon's first novel, The Hydrangea People, was published in 2002, and won praise from such prominent Southern writers as Ferrol Sams and Terry Kay. Now, he has a second novel out, called Slow Funeral, and he will be at Accent on Books this coming Friday beginning at 6:00 PM to talk about the book and sign copies.
Charles Gershon was born and brought up in Atlanta, and practiced medicine there for a number of years. He now lives in Asheville. He brings his medical expertise into play in this latest novel where the lead character, Jack Cain, is a doctor who gets caught up in a net of mystery and intrigue that stretches back to his father's experiences in World War II.
Slow Funeral is a page-turning novel that is just the thing to kick off the summer reading season. We hope you'll join us this Friday to meet Charles Gershon and support an Asheville author who is developing a strong literary career.
