I'm always impressed when authors write as something very different from themselves, especially in first person narrative. Like male actors who played Viola or Rosalind in Shakespeare's time, Hunt is a man writing as a woman who is pretending to be a man. The conceit is based on real history: hundreds of women who disguised themselves as men so they could fight in the Civil War. The voice is lyrical, melodic and authentic. As a special bonus, we’ve arranged a dinner with the author on September 21.
