The Lost Song of Goliath

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

The bitter struggle between the ancient Israelites and Philistines, the legendary combat between David and Goliath—it’s one of the most famous stories in the world. But no matter how many times the story has been told, we have heard only one side of the story—until now. The Lost Song of Goliath dramatically transforms this epic by retelling it from the viewpoint of Goliath and the Philistines. Goliath's tale has not yet been told, although he is a literary character who is begging for an author to give him a voice. Goliath has heretofore been known only as a monstrous freak, a foil for the heroism of David. The Lost Song of Goliath gives him a compelling story and a life—a full, flawed human life, with friendship, love, grief, heartache, and betrayal. The Lost Song of Goliath engages the reader in the challenges, dilemmas, triumphs, and disappointments of a man and a people forced to fight for survival, in the process recreating in vivid, accurate detail the world of the ancient Middle East at the time of the Iron Age, from the daily life of its inhabitants to the sanguinary battles between its warring peoples. With its underlying message of the futility of war, The Lost Song of Goliath is the story of David and Goliath retold for our time
