THE SCIENCE OF PAUL: A NOVEL OF CRIME

A HEALTHY FEAR OF MAN 

THE FURIOUS WAY

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

"T.S. Eliot referred to it as tradition and individual talent, the manner in which new work at once honors, builds upon, and questions what has come before. Chester Himes, Richard Wright, James Baldwin--Aaron Philip Clark has been paying attention."

"Aaron Philip Clark's prose is simply remarkable. It has that emergency to it, that makes you feel like you're doing something important by reading him."

BENOIT LELIEVRE, DEAD END FOLLIES

In many ways the style and strength of Clark's writing reminded me of Faulkner or Erskine Caldwell at times..."

WHO IS AARON PHILIP CLARK?

Aaron Philip Clark is a native of Los Angeles, CA. He is a novelist and screenwriter. His first novel, THE SCIENCE OF PAUL: A Novel of Crime (New Pulp Press), was published in 2011. The debut was met with interest and acclaim. Clark followed THE SCIENCE OF PAUL with A HEALTHY FEAR OF MAN (Snubnose Press) which was published the following year. Both novels featured the morally plagued and emotionally damaged ex-con turned reluctant sleuth, Paul Little, as he fought to escape the perils of Philadelphia street culture and return to his deceased grandfather’s farm in North Carolina. Inspired by works of French existentialists, Clark’s prose reverberated with ideas and philosophies put forth by Jean-Paul Sartre, Jean-Patrick Manchette, and Fyodor Dostoyevsky. 

 

Clark's third book, THE FURIOUS WAY, is a third-person omniscient novella about an aging hit-man who agrees to help an orphaned girl seek justice for her mother's murder by taking down the supposed killer—a Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney. THE FURIOUS WAY was published in May 2019. Clark's fourth novel, THE COLOR OF AUTHORITY; a first-person novel inspired by Clark’s experiences in LAPD was recently acquired by Thomas & Mercer and will be published in November 2021.
