"A dark and utterly compelling work with an unnervingly resonant vision of our present age. Excellent work by a fine young writer." --Robert Olen Butler

"Reading The Natural Order of Things is like holding a tattered masterpiece in your hands-- individually the pieces are their own small works of art but the true brilliance isn't realized until you fit them together."-- J.W. Schnarr, author of Alice & Dorothy

"Here is Kevin Keating, rallying against that tired old complaint, "Where are the new American voices?" He writes with verve, knowing, and wit--an explorer of the thin but deep fissure between privileged Jesuit school boys and the scrape-by world that surrounds it. Here, then, a wild exploration of the places and people that we wish we had the courage to begin. And now we can. Thanks to Kevin Keating's vision."--Michael Garriga, author of The Book of Duels

"A darkly brilliant, sometimes disturbing odyssey that lays bare the human condition."--Barry Goodrich, Cleveland Magazine
