Reviews

A rare young stylist, with an abundance of vivid, engrossing stories in his brain; Christian Kiefer is a genuine find.--Richard Ford
The deep, dense prose Kiefer uses makes you slow down and take it all in. Word by word and sentence by sentence, Kiefer reels the reader into his world.--Heather Bobula
Eloquent and shattering, this novel explores, in gritty detail, how penance sometimes does not lead to redemption, a modern take on the story of Eden. Kiefer is a master wordsmith, and his dense and beautiful language intensifies the pain and isolation of the main character... Devastatingly beautiful. This novel embodies why we write and why we read.
A mesmerizing literary thriller... there's a thrilling story line that builds in momentum to an inevitable denouement, paced by prose that's poetic without ever succumbing to preciousness. This is a compelling, thoughtful novel.
