Product Details


“I was baffled, dazzled, angered and awed … I adored it … a modern day classic … equally audacious and brilliant …. Moxon is a literary demon.” — Ron Charles, Washington Post

A spectacular invention … [Moxon is] a wildly gifted inventor … Engrossing …” — The New York Times

“I’m almost irritated by how much I enjoyed it… It is, by turns and often at once, surreal, absurd, horrifying, earnest and satirical … written with a playful elegance … I’m astonished by how compulsively readable it is.”— NPR
“It’s a good thing The Revisionaries is so funny. It will prevent whatever civilization that finds it thousands of years from now forming a creepy new religion around it.” — Patton Oswalt
“Reading this maximalist picaresque epic, one finds oneself obsessed with its meticulously rendered dreamscape, both enchanting and shiversome, impossibly otherworldly yet rigorously persuasive. A. R. Moxon is a writer of, it seems, boundless imagination—also heart, also humor—and The Revisionaries is almost maddeningly enjoyable, twist by turn, gorgeous sentence by gorgeous sentence. I  loved this novel. Just plain loved it.” — Benjamin Dreyer, author of Dreyer’s English

“A beautiful, harrowing, thrilling book. Saints and sinners roam its pages, trying to save the world or themselves, or just figure out what the hell went wrong. Wielding exuberant, intelligent prose, A. R. Moxon grapples with the modern world and its villians and inverts our expectations like hapless turtles. It’s a wild ride and a great read.” —Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife

The Revisionaries has not only heart and brains but the lively pulse of a singular voice.” —Kelly Link, author of Get in Trouble

“Mind-bending. A headlong adventure yarn set in a vividly-imagined cityscape, The Revisionaries is also a fiendish narrative, as well as a parable at scale about freedom and responsibility.” —Martin Seay, author of The Mirror Thief

“The Revisionaries is an audacious, funny, and relentlessly inventive novel. If Kurt Vonnegut had been commissioned to rewrite the Old Testament, this would be the result.” —Tom McAllister, author of How to Be Safe

“A darkly contemporary, adult version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, asks readers to attempt to make sense of its eerie, thought-provoking nonsense.”  — Shelf Awareness
