Product Details


Before You Know Kindness may very well be his best. . . . Masterly . . . timely [and] well-wrought.” –The Boston Globe


“An irresistible read. Moving from quiet domestic drama to legal thriller.” –The Washington Post


“A dark psychological dance of family estrangements, lies and self-righteousness . . . plenty of finely wrought characters and thought-provoking personal and political drama.” –The Seattle Times


“Extraordinary. . . . Bohjalian has had much success in the past, including a selection as an Oprah Book Club author. Before You Know Kindness is better than anything he’s written before.” –Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
