"'Provocative and beautifully told - a breakout novel for Maine.' Kirkus Reviews 'With a modern novelist's art, acuity and insistence on psychological realism, Maine manages what no religious teacher ever could and had me believing in the truth of these most archetypal of characters...Having appropriated such an old story it's a marvel that Maine can make it feel so fresh.' Independent on Sunday 'Although Fallen is a familiar tale, the rewinding structure and the compelling tension and depth of the characters make it gripping...with charm and wry wit, he merely tickles the idea that God is perhaps, well, a bit of a bastard.' Time Out"
