Cope Murray has written a novel which is now available on Kindle, The Making of Daniel by Clapham Murray. Set in the backdrop of the post Civil War south is the story of a mulatto and his white father’s search for him. Cope’s novel is a generational saga from 1880 to the Second World War that comes full circle to its interracial origin.
The library has purchased a copy for the Kindle eReader we lend out. When the book come out in paperback, the library will purchase a paperback copy as well. If you wish to purchase your own Kindle copy from Amazon, I suggest you search for “Murray, Clapham” and it’ll come right up.
Cope Murray, long time resident of Tamworth, started his acting career as a Barnstormers Theatre actor in 1958, and continues to appear on the Barnstormers stage to this day. He also served as artistic director. Murray is an Equity actor who has appeared in several films, including In the Bedroom in 2002. The Making of Daniel is his first published novel.
