"An exceedingly thoughtful but often heart-pounding crime story."

"Moose (Berkeley U.S.A., 1981, etc.) is a compelling storyteller, and this one unfolds with page-turning urgency as she paints a convincingly chilling portrait of white supremacy in a small Southern town."

"Far from cute, this book takes a serious look at the value of love, the impossibility of permanence, and the ways in which humans leave the world."
Steven Stosny, Ph.D., is the founder of CompassionPower. This is the first novel of a well-known psychotherapist and author of psychology books for the general public and popular blogger ... Read full author bio >
"The story gets gloomier and more harrowing in the final act, but narrator Henry One provides slivers of light throughout with a cynical but earnest voice: “Reality is a lot harder than I imagined.” Stosny’s typically dry descriptions provide a counterpoint to the plot’s somber content, like simply noting a children’s toothpaste commercial that follows a TV report on child sex-trafficking victims. The lead’s dual personality gives readers two absorbing characters, regardless of who can or can’t see them."

"A writer tries to answer all of life’s mysteries by having a Socratic dialogue with God in this debut philosophical work. As translated from the original Russian by Joanna Dobson, the conversations between God and the protagonist rely heavily on wordplay, engaging rhetorical strategies, and a dry sense of humor that helps to ground the lofty subject matter. This ambitious book’s unique structure offers some unusual, intriguing moments."
Denny Goetz, for most of his life a resident of Manhattan, considers his appreciation of the foibles and idiosyncracies of his fellow citizens to be a trait that helped him ... Read full author bio >
"The Catholic Church and sex scandals are hardly an original topic for barbs, but Goetz's satirical novel - comprising interior monologues, letters, diary entries, and direct entreaties to God by Father Flanagan - is a funny, fresh take on organized religion."
