True Surrealism by Christopher Klim

Idiot! by Christopher Klim

What is the value of one life? Forest ranger Thomas King is a severe dyslexic and perceived village idiot. Alone, he roams the Pine Barrens, hoping to save a failing town. Claire Wethers' children have been stolen by her ex. The former beauty queen privately drowns her fears in whiskey. Their lives appear as marginal as the bankrupt town, but when this unlikely pair merge paths, everything changes.


"Gourmet food for the mind." - Robert Gover, author Poorboy at the Party

"Unique psychological tour into the soul of a small town." - Booklist

"Klim's finely-honed images threaten to jump off the page." - Duff Brenna, author The Book of Mamie

"Klim has done it again." - Thomas E. Kennedy, international editor StoryQuarterly

"A moving book. It makes you understand just what a few unkind words can do to a person." -

"Klim cuts a persuasive image of a downsized community, although the individual stories define his real talent." - Midwestern Book Cavalcade

"I enjoy Christopher Klim's work. Idiot!, like Klim's other books (Jesus Lives in Trenton, Everything Burns, and The Winners Circle), always gives me something different than I would suspect. ...a worthy effort from one of my favorite [new] writers." - Armchair Reviews

"Klim makes his characters seem all too real. As I was reading the book, I couldn't help but draw comparisons between Thomas and Sylvester Stallone's character in the film Copland. As Klim weaves his story in and around the train-wrecks that are Claire and Thomas, he makes you want to root for both of them and hope for the best possible end of their tragedies." - Bruce Von Stiers Reviews

"For readers looking to experience the pure and effortless joy of being drawn right into a novel within the first few pages, award-winning author/journalist, Christopher Klim's latest novel, Idiot!, delivers a delightful read." - The US Review of Books
