Queen of Angels

Queen of Angels

by David M. Castro

Queen of Angels contrasts Shakespeare with gritty and profane 1970s New York, exploring themes of love, sex, violence, death, faith and coming of age: “These violent delights have violent ends.” The novel captures the angst of teenage love striving for maturity within the context of a high-school production of Romeo and Juliet, crossing the precarious border between flesh and fantasy that author David Castro—former Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney and now CEO of the Institute for Leadership, Education, Advancement and Development—experienced and observed as a Brooklyn teenager.

“Not only is the novel a compelling exploration of young love, it’s a gripping piece of storytelling.” —Publishers Weekly

Release date: October 2016 in paperback and Valentine’s Day 2017 in e-book and audiobook formats.
