The Opinionists

By Richard French

Literary fiction | eBook


The veteran director Vincent Adair hopes to revive his career by making a movie about a theological controversy that's spread through colonial Sagadac in the 17th century. Other people are involved in the film, of course, and the odd-numbered chapters of the novel tell about the experiences of some of them as they engage with the movie -- veteran actors, technical people, residents of the town where the film is being made, and Adair himself. The even-numbered chapters tell the story of the controversy from the point of view of one of the participants, who was once a friend and then adversary of the woman at the center of the story. One purpose of "The Opinionists" is to give an example of American people responding to their own heritage. Another is to show the persistence of the quest for freedom in the American character.



Richard French is an American who's been in Canada for more than 25 years. He now lives and writes in Toronto. He has published 13 novels on kindle direct publishing and is now working on another. His themes include art, warfare and its aftermath, urban life, family, 17th century America, America's heritage, and crisis and healing. Because he's served as a Lutheran pastor for as long as he's been in Canada, the Christian faith also figures in his stories.
