Written by Anson Wright at the beginning of his multi-faceted career, Jericho is a towering novel that holds an important place in the pantheon of American letters. Considered by Anaïs Nin as a writer of such depth that she referred to his work as "bottom of the sea level," Wright's debut novel describes a soul's journey you will soon recognize as your own. Rich in imagery, humor, and dreams, Jericho is a book that leaves a deep impression on readers and is uniquely experienced by everyone who reads it.
First published in 1977 to critical acclaim, Jericho received limited distribution. Eventually it fell out of print and has been dwelling in the archives of the Library of Congress – until now.
On its 35th anniversary, Jericho is being released in e-book format. Experience for yourself the wonder of this story. Similar to Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist, Jean-Paul Sartre's La Nausée, and Gabriel García Márquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude, Anson Wright's Jericho is a masterful and transforming work.
