Shadows the Sizes of Cities, A Novel

Author(s): Gregory W Beaubien

Location(s): Morocco, Amsterdam, Chicago, Spain

Genre(s): Fiction, Thriller

Era(s): 1994

While traveling with friends in Europe and Morocco, the young American reporter Will Clark is drawn into killing a drug dealer. Pursued by other gang members and the police, his bond with his companions broken and his sense of himself shattered, Will plunges further into danger even as he pursues the elusive blonde backpacker Stacey Snow, whose love might make him whole again–or doom them both. A literary noir that combines action and suspense with exotic locations, written in a style that modulates between blunt and lyrical passages while touching on themes of alienation, class divisions and complex father-son relationships, “Shadows the Sizes of Cities” is the debut novel of a new talent in fiction. Journalist and author Gregory W. Beaubien has reported from countries around the world for newspapers, magazines and websites including the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, Travel + Leisure and Yahoo Travel.
