About the Author
Praise For The Long Division…
"Derek Nikitas reveals a maimed beauty in the darkest recesses of the human heart, and THE LONG DIVISION will stay with you long after you turn the last page. I loved this book." - Sean Chercover:
"Coming off one of the most accomplished debuts in recent years, Derek Nikitas's second novel, The Long Division, exceeds even the grandest of expectations. As he deftly weaves together three perilous storylines, we feel ourselves simultaneously moved, horrified and brokenhearted as the novel spirals towards its breathtaking conclusion. Nikitas finds beauty and pathos in the smallest of gestures, the largest of actions, the darkest of paths. Not to be missed."
“In its dark heart, this murderous tale is about family, but whether family is our salvation or our doom is the real mystery. Pushed to their breaking points, Nikitas' characters are brutally compelling, his narrative voice riveting. Once again,his storytelling seems powered by a steam-engine, an unstoppable force.”
