Book excerpt: “So, for all of your technological superiority, the missing piece of a three-thousand-year old puzzle is something as mittelmäßig as the answer man, in particular, a minor, and, specifically, this guy,” I joked. Demian Friedrich is an eccentric yet apathetic, harmonica-playing, teenage reader who prefers to keep to himself and remain on the fringes of things. Yet after the mysterious deaths of his girlfriend and favorite teacher, he stumbles into a conspiracy theory and soon finds himself in the middle of a secret war between two groups of descendants of an ancient civilization. Both groups, the J’lares and the Nevels, each practice different hermeneutics toward a vague prophetic utterance that states that Demian is a key figure in ending their three-millennial conflict, a conflict revealed later to be one of supra-cosmological significance. But as the J’lares and Nevels struggle for control over Demian, they will all play into an unforeseeable type of threat, which none of their worldviews could anticipate. A stage-setting Entwicklungsroman (and first-ever anti-YA novel) filled with commentary on high and low culture, dips into metafiction, encounters with mysticism, existential concerns, and quasi-philosophical debate (and Notes for the uninitiated), SINEDIE presents an unprecedented, introspective, character-driven narrative about a quirky teenager coming to terms with death, the novel’s primary theme, and yet a theme that is counterbalanced by how the protagonist creatively internalizes his secret and unrequited love for an older woman, one who answers for him the age-old question who is the woman at the center of your existence? and who culminates in the novel’s surprising and unconventional (hidden) love story.
