The Canticles Truly Sing!
Three men are plagued by the laments of their pasts and are facing the present storms of unfortunate circumstances. Vince Karlson is a man convicted of a terrible crime. Gabriel Gibson is a subject of restless hallucinations that have rendered him insane. Jonny Heartlowe is a fierce artist, haunted and marked by an ungodly curse that will forever shake the very foundations of many lives and alter the course of history as they know it.
Canticles of the Sheep by 21-year old virtuoso Zee Saliba is an intensively dark drama of cursed human beings who come to grips with their pasts, delusions, and fated choices. Set amid a sinister backdrop of the New York boroughs, it is a story of the darkest aspects of human nature through the most unusual circumstances, where fates are entwined and both redemption's and downfalls are the outcomes.
It isn’t much of a surprise that, since its first release in late 2010 under renowned American publishing house Xlibris, Canticles has garnered a cult following, particularly in Lebanon, where it sold more than 200 copies on its first day.
Sufficed to say, I am eager to read Mr. Saliba’s upcoming novel Angels of Paradise as soon as it hits international markets.
Canticles of the Sheep is featured in every major online bookstore, including Amazon, Goodread and Barnes&Noble.
It made quite the impact at both the UCLA LA Book Festival and Virgin Megastore.
