Salt Lake Tribune: Utah writer tells a contemporary Mormon coming-of-age story through an immortal narrator.

by Ellen Fagg Weist

“If David Pace’s novel about a young man reared in a large, devoted Utah family rings with authenticity, that’s because its themes have autobiographical resonance for its author.

“Pace, the literary editor of the Utah arts magazine 15 Bytes, will launch his first novel, “Dream House on Golan Drive,” at a reading at The King’s English in Salt Lake City on Tuesday.

“The novel, published by Signature Books, tells of the coming-of-age of Riley Hartley, the oldest son in a Mormon family of 10 children raised in the Provo neighborhood considered Snob Hill. The family is raised by a charismatic religion teacher and his bread-baking wife, a former Miss Utah, who in her pageant days was considered a Mormon Grace Kelly.”
