The Book of Silala

The Book of Silala
Meet the Author

The Book of Silala is a poetic chorus of voices that evokes the life and death of a ‘valiant Episcopalian’ who may have been a layabout and may have been a saint. Joe Evanisko’s inventive, slyly elliptical style exactly mirrors the secrets and twists of the mysterious town of Silala. He gives us a dreamy, open-hearted guide to this wonderland: an Episcopal priest escaping her own congregation to a rural community that is by turns bewildering, deceptive, engaging, violent, and tender.”
