Demon: A Memoir by Tosca Lee, paperback, 325 pages.
NavPress Publishing Group

Here is the blurb:

Clayton's life is stuck in the mud. His wife has been cheating on him for years, his literary career is uninspired, and his job as an editor is mediocre at best. But when he walks into a restaurant and finds a mysterious dark-haired stranger waiting for him, his life dramatically changes. The stranger claims to be Lucian, one of Lucifer's fellow fallen angels, come to tell Clay his story of the angels' dramatic fall from Heaven, Adam and Eve's Eden, and Christ's triumph on the cross - from a demon's perspective. This seems just the thing to get Clay's career jumpstarted, but it could mean his ultimate success or failure as Lucian's story seems to become more and more like his own
.

"You're late. Do you know how long I have waited for you here? An eternity, you might say."
And so begins the conversation of Lucian, the demon, with the human Clay.
The same, however, could be said from me to you: do you know how long I have waited for you here? This book is months and years in the making, as all books are. But the story within it is an eternity in the unfolding.
Join me, for a tale about the power of evil, obsession, ultimate grace--and of storytelling itself.


BTW, Tosca is up for the Clive Staples Nomination. If Wind Follower doesn't get it -- I don't think it will, by the way-- I'd like Tosca to get it. She's half-Asian. But some other good books are up there too. Legend of The Firefish. Auralia's Colors.
