BEWARE THE BOOK
... books which have some kind of
explosive power, books which lead
to transformations or mutations,
books of dissonance & contagion
Rainer J. Hanshe is one of today's most original and thought-provoking writers...
The Abdication is a visionary novel of dangerous ideas, a theological thriller concerned with the absence of god and the question posed by the phrase: Dionysus versus the Crucified.
Hanshe's style is original, hard, ironic, but at the same time classic and stately, shrewd & never banal, indeed full of slang and polyglot explosions.
Alessio Riva, Corso Italia
Hanshe’s phantasmagoric and cunning prose eviscerates accreted mytholo-gies while revealing the tragedy atten-dant on the death and births of gods. Its controversial premises will enrage and provoke many, but the quality and elegance of the writing will amaze all.
