   schema:description ""In the first chapter of Graham Salisbury: Island Boy, David Gill chronicles the labyrinthine path of Salisbury's life and career, from barefoot island boy to college dropout, from pop musician to schoolteacher, and from real estate manager to author of young adult fiction. In subsequent chapters, Gill reviews critical responses to Salisbury's work and discusses the author's plots, style, literary themes, use of archetypes, and coming-of-age stories that dominate his work. In the concluding chapter, fans are treated to a peek at some of Salisbury's future projects."--Jacket."@en ;
