David Fulmer's January 2008 Harcourt release, THE BLUE DOOR, will restore your faith in storytelling. In a digital world of slick production, inanely catchy and endlessly repeated refrains, and single tune download logic, Fulmer gives us a literary LP. THE BLUE DOOR recaptures the lost arts of letting the story unfold over time, of building it on fully composed characters rather than cheap hooks, and of playing it all over the steady background hiss of the racial and economic tensions that are America. Pick up a copy, slide into the groove, and settle in for the lyric prose tale of Philadelphia, 1962—the story of a washed-up fighter, an R&B diva who seems to lose everything she fights to love, a music mogul who thinks he holds rights to the people making the tunes, and the secrets and societal forces that threaten to break them all down.
