Praise for The Double Life of Alfred Buber . . .
"...a truly remarkable literary creation..." --The New York Journal of Books

"The Double Life of Alfred Buber is an original and sophisticated novel which lingers in the mind. . ."--Dactyl Reviews

Overview of The Double Life of Alfred Buber . . .
A splendid original tale, Alfred Buber is warm, smart, romantic, but his life is as barren as an ice floe, an embarrassing collage of successes and humiliations that add up to... nothing. He lives as if he has landed in a strange country, nowhere he recognizes.

  • Can an-oh-so respectable Boston lawyer, out of options, out of hope, lonely beyond measure, stray way outside the lines and find love?

  • Can he step into the tawdry dark, and back into the wholesome light, and not be affected?

Alfred Buber thinks he can. But the line between his two lives is a thin one.

For anyone who hungers for great fiction, this fictional memoir is your next good read!

"An unusual morality play whose artful style veils the depravity of its protagonist."--Kirkus Reviews

"This book is literary fiction at its best--taut, well crafted, lovely prose, thoroughly engaging, which draws you into the character s strange new world and leaves your reading landscape forever altered."--BookConscious

The Double Life of Alfred Buber reads like a lost Nabokov novel...the prose is meticulously wrought, the plot deeply complex and psychologically layered..."--Small Press Reviews
