How does one person, simply trying to be “a good man,” conquer a rising maelstrom of mindless abuse, of hatred?

David, My David

is the saga of the victory over terror of Eduard Gottlieb Meyer.

A musical prodigy born to a traditional Hessian, German farm-family in 1921, Herr Meyer tells of a life extending from his early, halcyon years through the inter-war period, the ravages of the Hitler Time and World War II, and beyond, into post-war, neglectful Europe and the increasingly bipolar, 20th-century America faced by his expansive, Texas family.

On an odyssey marked by joy and sadness, despair and redemption, he survives through the personal strength he learns from his family and friends, from their faith in and dedication to others, as he asserts by his actions, even in darkest condition, that 

Hatred is the laziest form of cowardice.

Discover #1 New York Times-bestselling Patrick Rothfuss’ epic fantasy series, The Kingkiller Chronicle.
“I just love the world of Patrick Rothfuss.” —Lin-Manuel Miranda • “He’s bloody good, this Rothfuss guy.” —George R. R. Martin • “Rothfuss has real talent.” —Terry Brooks
My name is Kvothe.
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
You may have heard of me.
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.
