Product Details


“We all long for utopias to escape into, but as Abbott Kahler brilliantly demonstrates in the sumptuous storytelling feat that is her latest nonfiction book, Eden Undone, there simply is no escaping the hell that is other people. I was wowed by her research, her depiction of the tropical magic of the Galápagos Islands, her empathy for such a vivid array of characters—some of whom behave very badly—and for the larger point that paradises can be squandered by human venality.”—Sarah Weinman, award-winning author of The Real Lolita and Scoundrel

“Eden Undone is a mind-blowing tale of adventure, obsession, and hubris, with more twists—and more eccentric characters—than an Agatha Christie mystery. (The gun-toting, sex-crazed Baroness is surely one of the more spectacular villains in true-crime history.) In Abbott Kahler’s ever-brilliant hands, truth is always stranger than fiction.”—Ada Calhoun, New York Times bestselling author of Why We Can’t Sleep

“Absolutely riveting from start to the final twist of the knife, Eden Undone is a thrill ride of historical reportage. Abbott Kahler has woven an impossibly rich tapestry: an exotic locale, a cast of unforgettable characters, and a deeply haunting murder mystery. This is Kahler’s most captivating book yet and will cement her place as a master of narrative nonfiction.”—Susannah Cahalan, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Brain on Fire and The Great Pretender

“Brilliantly written, deeply researched, and wildly unpredictable, Eden Undone is a masterwork of narrative nonfiction, an immersive and exhilarating read.”—Michael Finkel, New York Times bestselling author of The Art Thief and The Stranger in the Woods
