Largo, FL (PressExposure) June 01, 2008 -- Academy Award-winner and author Robert Fate exclaims âHow can a debut novel be this good?â , the dazzling new Kunati novel Miracle Myx, by Dave Diotalevi, is one of the most unique and original literary creations ever, a brilliant coming-of-age story set in a small New England town rocked by a spate of brutal murders. With extraordinary confidence and sureness of touch, Diotalevi puts readers firmly in the head of his unusually talented protagonist and takes them on an unforgetable journey.
For an unblinking forty-two hours, the ultra-hip, ultra-smart fourteen-year-old Myx Amens uses his eidetic memory and his synaesthetic mind, which allows him to feel colours, smell emotions and hear shapes, to probe the dirty secrets of the people of Miracle. He solves the murders, of course, but learns so much more along the way. The shocking results of his snooping lead to a conclusion that some will find controversial.
âMyx Amens has the kind of nearly super-human abilities everybody fantasizes about at some time in their life. Heâs smarter, faster, stronger than everybody else and heâs unafraid of anything,â said Kunati publisher Derek Armstrong. âHe knows how to use people to get what he wants, Fortunately, he has a conscience and he uses his talents for good rather than evil.â
There has already been movie production interest in April and May for Miracle Myx. Ongoing publicity will promote Miracle Myx through the summer of 08 from Kunati Books, called a ânew publisher to watchâ by Booklist.
Kunati seeks out provocative and controversial fiction, as well as non-fiction that inspires and enlightens. The spring 2008 season includes a satire of the US military by a retired Navy Commander, two new medical thrillers, an inspiring story of a woman battling cancer and terrorized by a murderer, a literary adventure about the search for the tomb of Jesus, and a novel that explores the personality of a woman who murdered her toddler son.
