Daniel Donatelli's literary debut, Music Made by Bears, combines beautifully written prose with a multilayered, thematic story that challenges readers to reflect on the meaning, purpose, and depth of life. A seemingly endless canvas of descriptive natural imagery provides the setting for this linguistically melodic novel, which takes place in an isolated religious community whose long-sought seclusion and harmony are disrupted by the arrival of two mirrored opposites - one invited, and one not. Music Made by Bears is a quick read of high-quality, thought-provoking fiction.
