Praise for In the Fabled East
“Adam Lewis Schroeder's second novel is lush, complicated, sensual and mysterious.”
-St John Telegraph-Journal
“How welcome is an enjoyable novel that seems so unapologetically on the wrong side of today’s literary and cultural politics!”
-The Globe and Mail
"Simply put, In the Fabled East is a winner, drawing on disparate elements to create a singular, stunning whole. It is beautiful, and haunting; brutal, and realistic; it is strange and alien but fundamentally familiar and human; it is thoughtful, and suspenseful, meditative and action-filled. It is the sort of book that not only becomes a bestseller but is passed from hand to hand, shared among readers."
"In a tremendously satisfying dénouement, our principal players are united partly by war, partly by the dissolution of empire, but mainly by a mother-and-child reunion — the dimensions of which can only be imagined within the pages of this marvelous and compelling tale."
