Touching on a wide range of different themes, Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis is a truly compelling read. Throughout the pages of his thought-provoking novel, the author, Vaughn Petterson, presents readers with a vivid portrait of the best and worst that humanity has to offer, inviting them to form their own conclusions about the respective moral weight of our various social folkways and mores. Written in a deeply lyrical style, Fantasia successfully incorporates the transformative media of art, music, and literature as a figurative backdrop for Joe’s personal metamorphosis—highlighting the significance of the arts in helping to change us in ways we could hardly imagine. Petterson also skillfully invokes higher levels of deeper thought in the reader, chiefly by inviting them to consider the deeper spiritual ramifications of the issues with which his characters are forced to contend—issues that rest at the core of our collective existence.
