Description
A provocative epic of a story we know so well-or do we? Once expelled from the Garden, Adam and Eve had to find their way past recriminations and bitterness to build a new life in a harsh land. In Fallen, David Maine has drawn a convincing, enthralling portrait of a family-one driven (and riven) by familiar passions and jealousies. The result is a staggering achievement an intimate, hilarious, and utterly original telling of temptation and murder and of exile and loss. Praise for The Preservationist: "Inventive re-imagining of the Biblical flood tale for a 21 st-century audience." - People "An elegant, inventive book... that] envisions the events in Noah's life with awe and realism." - The New York Times "A brilliant, kaleidoscopic analysis of the situation...this debut is a winner." - Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Author David Maine brings motive and inner dialogue to the story, and narrator Simon Vance brings those elements alive."
