On the surface, this novel is just a murder mystery. But there is so much more just beneath the surface, and to mention it all would give too much away, so I'll just say if you liked D'Agnese's THE MESMERIST, you'll love this book. And if you haven't...more

“The two hardest things about writing are starting and not stopping.”
Stewart O'Nan

“The person who wants nothing, hopes for nothing, and fears nothing can never be an artist.”
― Anton Chekhov

“There is for a man two things in life that are very important, head and shoulders above everything else. Find work you like, and find someone to live with you like. Very few people get both.”
Cormac McCarthy

“Isolation in creative work is an onerous thing. Better to have negative criticism than nothing at all.”
― Anton Chekhov
