Hovis’ Novel Updates

Adam, Eve Story

By LIBBY CUDMORE • Special To AllOTSEGO.com

COOPERSTOWN – Ink, said George Hovis, has a way of getting under your skin.

In the ’90s, the SUNY Oneonta English professor worked as a process chemist in an ink factory in Charlotte, N.C. “Ink got into my subconscious,” he said. “And it came out as the ink on the skin of these characters.”

His debut novel, “The Skin Artist,” just released from SFK Press, follows Bill Becker as his upwardly mobile life begins to spiral out of control.

He is joined by a tattooed dancer, Lucy, as the two of them leave the city of Charlotte to confront the pasts that lie in wait in the Carolina countryside.
