“Brilliant. Selden Edwards is a writer of great intellect and wit, and his books are a joy to read. I love The Lost Prince. The Little Book made such an impression on me; The Lost Prince is even better.”
-Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain
“I loved Selden Edwards’s first novel The Little Book and told everyone I knew about it. I just read his second novel The Lost Prince and think that Mr. Edwards has written his finest work so far. Once again, Selden Edwards demonstrates his mastery in blending together philosophy and art with the help of wonderful characters you fall in love with. The Lost Prince is a terrific second novel.”
“The Lost Prince can stand independently of The Little Book… but why deprive yourself of the pleasures of reading both?”
"A powerful, intense, and fascinating read."
— Kirkus (starred review)
“Edwards’s bird’s-eye view of the details of this momentous age makes this companion piece as much fun as his debut.”
— Publishers Weekly
Praise for The Little Book:
“Back to the Future for the intellectual set.”
— Entertainment Weekly
“There's nothing small about Selden Edwards' debut novel, The Little Book -- not its scale, ambitions or back story.”
— USA Today
“A soaring thing of joy whose only purpose — and I mean this as a compliment — is to delight and entertain.”
— Maureen Corrigan, NPR
“Selden Edwards's impressive debut novel is richly-inventive, woven tightly with incident, and fully engaging. It is also superbly humane and readable.”
