Latest Book


by John Colapinto

New Yorker staffer Colapinto's novel (after About the Author) is an over-the-top, irreverent, and darkly comical thriller... Colapinto's novel oscillates between highly ironic and deeply earnest treatments of this taboo subject matter. The story tackles sexual and moral dilemmas that are worth contemplating, delivering them at a breakneck and often entertaining pace.Publishers Weekly
