The Enchanted by Rene Denfeld

A powerful and hauntingly beautiful novel set on death row – like The Green Mile or The Shawshank Redemption written by Cormac McCarthy.

Even monsters need peace.  Even monsters need a person who truly wants to listen – to hear – so that someday we might find the words that are more than boxes.  Then maybe we can stop men like me from happening…

A prisoner sits on death row in a maximum security prison.  His only escape from his harsh existence is through the words he dreams about, the world he conjures around him using the power of language.  For the reality of his world is brutal and stark.  He is not named, nor do we know his crime.

But he listens.  He listens to the story of York, the prisoner in the cell next to him whose execution date has been set.  He hears the lady, an investigator who is piecing together York’s past.  He watches as the lady falls in love with the priest and wonders if love is still possible here.  He sees the corruption and the danger as tensions in ‘this enchanted place’ build.  And he waits.  For even monsters have a story…

Peer & Press Reviews

The Enchanted wrapped its beautiful and terrible fingers around me from the first page and refused to let go after the last.  A wondrous book that finds transcendence in the most unlikely of places, enshrouding horrible things in a gossamer veil of fantasy with a truly unforgettable narrator.  So dark yet so exquisite.

Erin Morgenstern, author of The Night Circus

The Enchanted is unlike anything I've ever read…  A jubilant celebration that explores human darkness with a profound lyric tenderness and not one jot of sentimentality… contagious and seductive.

Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love
