ANYONE CAN WHISTLE
ANYONE CAN WHISTLE is the story of Michael Wood, a New York city kid who falls under the wing of Hob, a mysterious student at his Catholic high school.
Full of magic, adventure and humor, this is a novel that might be compared to Neil Gaiman’s NEVERWHERE, or Lev Grossman’s THE MAGICIANS, for its mix of deft literary style with a compelling spin on traditionally escapist fantasy tropes. And its hero, Mike Wood, is no bespectacled geek: he’s a brawny, two-fisted slugger with an appetite for battle.
Sam Munson has written for such publications as The Wall Street Journal and The National, and the New York Times has called him “an audacious new writer.” He lives in Harlem.
