ANARCHY. James Treadwell. Atria.


Cover courtesy of Atria.

James Treadwell’s Anarchy serves as the second installment in a trilogy born with the 2013 publication of the widely acclaimed Advent. Readers familiar with Treadwell know that his genius is marked by the unique ability to tell a story that merges fantasy and realism in vibrant tones. And Anarchy is no exception. Here, Corporal Goose Maculloch of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police tracks an accused murderer through the backwoods of Vancouver Island, stepping into the great convergence: This world leading into that door where the infinite is revealed. A well-developed narrative showcases Treadwell’s style that recalls the depth of Pynchon with the unbridled energy of early Tom Robbins.
