Description

Vincent Ettrich, a genial philanderer, discovers he has died and come back to life, but he has no idea why, or what the experience was like. Gradually, he discovers he was brought back by his true love, Isabelle, because she is pregnant with their child--a child who, if raised correctly, will play a crucial role in saving the universe. But to be brought up right, the child must learn what Vincent learned on the other side--if only Vincent can remember it. On a father's love and struggle may depend the future of everything that is. By turns quirky, romantic, awesome, and irresistible, White Apples is a tale of love, fatherhood, death, and life that will leave you seeing the world with new eyes.show more

Review quote

Reading Jonathan Carroll is like watching the" X-Files" or "The Twilight Zone" if the episodes were written by Dostoevski or Italo Calvino. "Pat Conroy" Jonathan Carroll is a master of sunlit surrealism. "Jonathan Lethem" Jonathan Carroll creates contemporary romances in the literary tradition of Hawthorne and other masters of the form. Fete him, read his books. See him for what he is--one of our most gifted and intelligent entertainers. "The Washington Post""show more
