of friendship, guilt, and madness tells the story of two friends torn apart by

It’s been ten years since the “incident,” and Adam has
long decided he’s better off without his former best friend, Thomas. Adam is
working as a tutor, sleeping with the mother of a student, spending lonely

embarks upon a magnificently strange and unlikely journey, Ben Dolnick spins a
tale of spiritual reckoning, of search and escape, of longing, and of reaching for
redemption—a tale of near hallucinatory power.
