Tom Lukas, "Special Operations"
The Book Cellar, Friday, August 1 at 7pm
Join us as Tom Lukas reads from his debut novel, Special Operations. Following the death of a local policeman, a mysterious person known as the Illuminator descends upon a small New England town to exact justice in a cruel and unusual way. As the story unfolds, what we encounter is a captivating psychological thriller with a story less about the "what" than the "why," a hero who could just as easily be the villain, and an ending with far more questions than answers. Tom Lukas left his career as master carpenter and licensed homebuilder at age thirty-three to earn a degree in English Literature because he wanted to become a writer. At Virginia he found a home at the eText Center and in the American Studies program which emphasized electronic publishing, and applied this new form of craftsmanship as project manager for the National Endowment for the Humanities award-winning literary archive The World of Dante, and in editing the New York Public Library's first electronic literary archive African American Women Writers of the Nineteenth Century. At age fifty he published his first work in North American Review.
