The Reconstructionist

Nick Arvin (Author)
Available

Description

In a gripping novel of secrets and survival from an acclaimed, emerging literary voice, the collision between a budding forensic investigator, his tormented mentor, and the haunted woman who emerges from the wreckage of his past will have fateful results for all. Following his collection In the Electric Eden and the novel Articles of War, Nick Arvin's The Reconstructionist is both a page-turning thriller and a powerful novel of character, with shades of Tom Franklin's Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, Dennis Cooper's The Marbled Swarm, and Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club. Fascinating and yet disturbing, redemptive and yet bleak, The Reconstructionist is like no other book today--while its timeless themes of damage and growth, decisiveness and responsibility, will echo far into the future.
--David Wroblewski, author of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
