In cadence evoking storytellers of oral tradition, Sam Friedland weaves a classic tale of heroes and villains, of challenges and triumphs, of origins and ends. Throughout his fantasy novel, The Giant, he casts his sharp eye for detail across olden earth and into its inhabitants’ hearts where he reveals delicate yearnings and prickling greeds.

 In some, he uncovers frantic impulse or sanguine rancor. In others, he finds lust or exuberance or wisdom. Then, using language ranging from lavish prose to dotty doggerel, he paints characters and scenes that will halt your breath and draw your sighs and gape your jaw and wide your eyes.
