Best Book of 2014 on The Spark
Eric’s novel, Above All Men, was chosen as the Best Book of 2014 on Alternating Current’s The Spark. The editor-in-chief had this to say about the debut novel:
“The list kicks off with my #1 favorite book of the year (and probably the next five years after this), and it deserves so many commendations for being the best book I’ve read in ages.
ABOVE ALL MEN: Eric Shonkwiler
What to say about this novel that I have not already said all year? I have been screaming accolades since I received the ARC for this incredibly gorgeous, haunting, poetic near-future tale that blends the richness of McCarthy with the sparseness of Hemingway with the poetry of Faulkner with a voice and precision that is uniquely Shonkwiler’s. This is hands-down my favorite book of 2014, and I cannot even tell you how it blew me away and resonates with me still. If you buy only one book this year, make it this one.”
