Kiss of the Jewel Bird

Kiss of the Jewel Bird

(2015)
A novel by

 
Good ole boy Dickie Frye vanishes from the Georgia hills and the urbane Fletcher Carlyle bursts onto the New York publishing scene, winning the Nobel Prize for literature. But when a psychotic rampage lands Carlyle in Weatherhaven, eminent psychologist Anton Kohl finds himself talking to Dickie Frye. Kohl's instincts tell him Frye is not lying - but what he says can't possibly be true.

A fallen priest comes out of Sumerian mythology, the love of Kohl's life comes out of his past, and a chicken comes out of a posh apartment on Central Park West to meet his fate. Anton Kohl's carefully constructed world is about to be deconstructed.

One part fable and one part Southern yarn, Kiss of the Jewel Bird soars from ancient Mesopotamia to modern-day Manhattan, rewriting history and opening a window onto a wider, more magical world, where the path to destiny is anything but straight.
