      A first novel.

    Steven Kotler's first book, The Angle Quickest for Flight, is visionary fiction the way we always hoped it could be--the quintessential quest, gripping by the ninth page. It's hip, literary, and poetic yet down-to-earth, with plenty of good story and brimming with sense of place. Even literary giant John Barth deemed it "a brilliant novel!" The fast-paced adventure unravels, ravels, and unravels again as a runaway boy christened Angel finds himself entangled with an odd assortment of eccentric metaphysicians searching for a sacred book looted during the Spanish Inquisition and tithed to the Vatican. Dodging a madman, Vatican agents, and his own past, Angel flits from a café in Santa Fe to the streets of San Francisco, the Wailing Wall of Jerusalem, Rome, Colorado, and Sumatra--Indiana Jones would have signed up for this assignment in a second had he known about it. Angle is a story about finding what is lost, metaphysically and in every other sense.
