A fictional imagining of the gentle but troubled zealot William Cowper -- best known as a precursor to Romantics such as Wordsworth and Burns -- Brian Lynchs The Winner of Sorrow brings to life the mind and times of an eighteenth-century poet.

Intense and exhilarating, this is literary fiction at its finest -- the reader will be hard-pressed not to rush ahead to see what happens next. Yet youll want to savor every word as Lynch traces Cowpers tragic descent into madness, which is presented matter-of-factly so that the novel is not sentimental but austere, not precious but serious, and yet, remarkably, lively, sensuous, and blackly comic.
