Arson at the Wolfe House
by Kevin Burton McGuire
Follow newsman Ben Jennings around an Asheville, North Carolina that Thomas Wolfe would not have recognized.
Ride along as Ben encounters visions of Zelda Fitzgerald, pagan rituals, a sub-culture embedded in the cityís infrastructure, and fires of unknown origin.
Ben becomes enamored by DC, a charismatic drifter with a dark world vision, and he is forced to confront DCís rejection of culture and the art it produces.
Through Benís private journal entries, learn about his struggle to overcome DCís destructive cynicism and his pursuit of an artistic vision. Will Ben follow his own artistic calling, or will he adopt DCís anti-social lifestyle? Hang on, as these two personalities collide and events spiral out of control!
"Kevin Burton McGuireís Fire Gazer is an intriguing glimpse at the seedy underbelly of Asheville and an imaginative speculation into the burning of the Thomas Wolfe house. A quick, entertaining read, Fire Gazer would complement any Wolfe, Asheville history, or haunted Asheville collection."
