California author William Graney’s novels include LIMBO, MOUNTAINTOP USA, MIRRORS IN THE DARK, SAVING GRACE, MOUNTAIN TIME AND THE LEGEND OF LA SOCIETE DE LA FRONTIERE OUVERTE, THE WAYS OF AUTUMN and now his newest novel THE MOUNTAIN’S MORNING SONG.

The premise was fantastic. In the not-so-distant future the far right in America have taken over politically, abandoning science and reason for TV Christianity, racism, and xenophobia. A small hamlet in the mountains seems to be the last refuge for people who care about the environment and each other. With some elements of fantasy and science fiction, the main characters await what is basically the end of the world.

Cool story but, unfortunately, the author breaks the cardinal rule of

This book was interesting to me because it seemed to outline, in pretty good detail, what life would be like if things in the past played out slightly different (and how it would impact our future, 2052). The way it’s written, though, really has more to say about where we are in the world today.
It’s very clear Graney put a lot of effort into making this into a statement while still maintaining value as a piece of entertaining literature. The style and writing isn’t perfect, but the message

The Mountain's Morning Song by William Graney is an interesting mix of politics and mystical thought. The beginning pages highlight the impact that WW II and the Japanese interment camps had on subsequent generations as a young family travels to a historical site in California. Beyond this scene though are the beginnings of a new kind of government in the not too distant future. In the year of 2052 there exists a secret society in the mountains, and they anticipate that the apocalypse is near, a ...more

'The Mountain's Morning Song' by William Graney is one of those great contemporary fiction novels that stay with you long after you have turned the last page. It starts taking a look at the hurt caused across the generations by the Japanese prisoner camps of the Second World War. You sense the pain felt by those who had been treated so poorly by a country they loved and worked so hard for. This leads us to 2052, an era where lessons from the past have not been learned and the United States is ru ...more
