This apartment is his world.
Something grows within the walls and within his being.
Her world lies beyond these walls. Beyond him.
A man is slowly poisoned by his own self-doubt within the hallucinatory shell of his decaying apartment. As he struggles to free himself, he descends into the surreal world that has grown around him. Into the gift garden…
Praise and reviews for The Gift Garden:
“A dense, claustrophobic vision, oozing dread, infection, spilled viscera. This is literature without compromise.”
“A truly original sense of imagery, dream, and lush language.”
“An expertly controlled meltdown told in a beautiful style. The Gift Garden left me satisfied as a reader and excited as a writer for the possibilities of innovation in the short novel form.”
“This intense novella is a feverish and poignant exploration of romantic jealousy. … A dark and breathless read.”
Kenny Mooney is writing the stuff I only wish I could. I admire his insight, sincerity, boldness and style no end, and I’m honoured to share this new edition with the world.
