Eldon Garnet’s Lost Between the Edges is a novel surprising not just for the prose, but also for the passion… Garnet uses imaginary and real characters, such as Zundel, and creates a realistic, sometimes frightening, sometimes pathetic, image of him. The conversations with white supremacists and ARA members are so accurate that they may have been dictated… This book is important not just for its style and intelligence, but because these pernicious forces at the edge of civilization still remain.—Sunday Book Reivew—
Expectedly, this documentary support, in the end, supports nothing and this ambiguity, or frustration, is Garnet’s ideal… This realization, that Garnet’s fictional Zundel is the real and truly repulsive Zundel (and might X, who destroys Zundel’s headquarters, actually be a version of the young Garnet, the incendiary author himself?), is stirring, and establishes the author of Lost Between the Edges as a master commentator on the contemporary religion of relativism… Garnet’s fictionalized ‘evidence’ of Zundel’s hatred exploits the exploiters, and does so with unforgiving intelligence.

Garnet’s novel rings true as a traumatic and conflicted portrait of modern bigotry and extremism.
There is something a bit Kafkaesque about Lost… both Joseph K. and X are anonymous allegorical characters, who represent ideas rather than people.

What appalling, barely-literate tripe.
