"Vanderslice has tremendous ambition here . . . readers are swept along by a desire to see Wilde come to some sort of much-deserved peace.  A quiet, tender portrait of a literary giant."

 

Kirkus Reviews

 

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR NOUS NOUS BY JOHN VANDERSLICE, FORTHCOMING IN 2021 FROM BRADDOCK AVENUE BOOKS

 Tense, menacing, and tightly constructed, Nous Nous is a deep dive into the complexities of character and the enigma of our moral universe. In precise, immersive prose, John Vanderslice snaps together a wrenching plot that engages and surprises as it moves readers through the perils and consolations of our interdependent lives. Nous Nous is a book you don’t simply read; you live through it.

 

--John Fleming, Songs for the Deaf and The Book I Will Write

 

NOUS NOUS RELEASE DATE SET FOR JUNE, 2021!!!

 

"If ever a novel sought to reveal the sacred in life... If ever a choir of voices and viewpoints came together with the design to lift hearts and hopes... Then Nous Nous is that collective of love and longing, of disappointment and loss and, ultimately, faith. There's a beautiful dignity and grace to be found in these modest pages, and John Vanderslice is sublime in evoking these modest lives." --William Lychack, author of Cargill Falls and The Wasp Eater
