Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '09/Winter '10 Reading Group List
“In Now You See Him, Eli Gottlieb takes readers deep inside the human heart and asks the question, 'How well do we know the people we love most?' This is one of those novels that remains with you long after you have read the last line.”
-- Kathleen Caldwell, A Great Good Place for Books, Oakland, CA
Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Indie Next List Highlights 2008
“This nuanced, intelligent novel is told from the point of view of Nick, a man in his thirties facing a collapsing marriage, and life, as tragic events send him on a completely new road. Richly written, this thrilling novel's twists and revelations gloriously delve into the nature of truth, friendship, marriage, and our own perceptions of ourselves.”
-- Joe Eichman, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO


Description

His name was Rob Castor. Quite possibly, you've heard of him. He became a minor cult celebrity in his mid-twenties for writing a book of darkly pitch-perfect stories set in a stupid sleepy upstate New York town. Several years later, he murdered his writer girlfriend, and then committed suicide. . . .

With extraordinarily luxuriant and evocative prose, award-winning author Eli Gottlieb takes us deep into the human psyche, where the most profound of secrets are kept. Now You See Him is a wrenching and enthrallingly suspenseful story that mines the explosive terrains of love and paternity, marriage and its delicate intricacies, family secrets and how they fester over time, and ultimately the true nature of loyalty, trust, friendship, envy, deception, and manipulation.
