Horse Country to Launch John Anderson’s New Novel

prophet of paradiseThe Prophet of Paradise, J. Harris Anderson, 2014, 487 pages, Soft Cover, $22.95J. Harris Anderson’s new novel, The Prophet of Paradise, will by launched Thursday, March 20, 2014, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Horse Country Saddlery in Warrenton, Virginia.

Anderson’s byline, which appears regularly in the pages of In & Around Horse Country, may be familiar to foxhunters across North America, but the tenor of his first novel, written for a mature audience, may be less familiar! In Anderson’s new book, tradition-bound foxhunting society becomes threatened by a radical concept: The Church of Foxhunting.

The promo blurbs tell us that “a current of titillation flows” among the true believers, from teenagers to grandparents, and the “two meanings of venery—pursuits both sporting and erotic—happily blend into a single drive,” creating conflict and tension in the hunting community.

Anderson will discuss his work and sign copies of his book. Refreshments will be served. RSVPs will be appreciated (540-347-3141 or 800-882-4868).
