MFAW-VT alumnus Donnelle McGee has a new novel Ghost Man. You can order his book and/or catch Donnelle reading at the venues listed below. Donnelle stopped by the Goddard MFA in Creative Writing’s blog, The Writer in the World, to talk about the new novel, which Chris Abani praised as: “Donnelle McGee writes with an incisive grace and insight. Uncompromising in its exploration of grit and themes of history, weaving noir into the literary, Ghost Man is an exciting and timely book. With some Chester Himes and some Walter Mosley and hints of Mat Johnson and Victor LaVelle, McGee has made a style all his own. A strong debut.”  You can read Donnelle’s interview here.
