“Hannah Tinti's The Good Thief features an orphan, a con man, a giant zombie, a mad doctor, a dwarf, and a sinister factory. Need I say more? It takes a pretty incredible writer to create a 19th-century boy's adventure story with a wry, 21st-century sensibility. Once you begin, you'll be saying 'just one more chapter.'”
-- Jessica Stockton, McNally Jackson Books, New York, NY

“Ren, one of many orphans at Saint Anthony's Orphanage for boys, is approaching the age when he will be conscripted into the army. A swaggering Benjamin Nab appears and claims Ren as his long-lost brother. But, as soon as they are on the way, it is clear that Benjamin Nab is not anything he seems to be. Tinti has written a wonderful, compelling novel.”
-- Lyn Roberts, Square Books, Oxford, MS


Description
A Dickensian cast of characters in 19th-century New England comes brilliantly to life in this wondrous debut novel about an orphaned boy and the colorful con man who claims to be his brother.
