The Country Will Bring Us No Peace


From Coach House Books, September 2019.

“One of those books that perfectly suits itself: all of the elements, the prose, the characters, style, the structure, and the gambits work for the feelings and experience it aims to express, right through to the beautiful and haunting ending.”

– PT Smith, Montreal Review of Books

“Despite the novel’s oppressive, relentless gloominess, The Country Will Bring Us No Peace is also packed with poetry that gives it a bizarre sparkle, something akin to the reflection of light you see on blood covered knives in horror movies […] an outstanding book that will resonate with lovers of great storytelling as well as with those who enjoy work happening in the interstitial space between literary fiction and psychological horror.”

– Gambino Iglesias, Vol 1. Brooklyn
