  • Greenland, David Santos Donaldson
    Amistad, 9780063159556, June 7, 2022 (Fiction)

    “If you’ve ever been saved by a story or nudged back to life by a narrative, this book is for you! Beautifully written and discerningly plotted. Lovers of Baldwin (and everyone else, honestly) won’t be able to put it down.”

    - Max Ruthless, Foggy Pine Books, Boone, NC

    “Debut author David Santos Donaldson’s book Greenland is a story within a story following a current day author trying to meet a deadline while crafting a story based on E. M. Forster and the secret love affair with Mohammed el Adl. The story weaves Kip’s struggles navigating his life as a young, gay man of color in today’s world, beautifully contrasted with Mohammed’s story navigating a world with the same identity a century ago.”

    Calvin Crosby, The King’s English Bookshop, Salt Lake City, UT

    “Greenland is a gorgeously multi-faceted, meta-literary, quasi-ghost story meets romantic vision quest that will knock your reading socks off and knit them back together into a whole new design. Donaldson’s stellar debut brings to mind Colson Whitehead, Sarah Perry, Paul Beatty, and Viet Nguyen.”

    Jonathan Hawpe, Carmichael’s Bookstore, Louisville, KY
