about

In Gates of Eden, Ethan Coen exhibits on the printed page the striking, twisted, yet devastatingly on-target vision of modern American life familiar from his movies. The world within the world we live in comes alive in fourteen brazenly original tragicomic short stories—from the Midwest mob war that fizzles due to the principals' ineptness to the trials of a deaf private eye with a blind client to a fugitive's heartbreaking explanation for having beheaded his wife, alarming in that it almost makes sense.

Ethan Coen and his brother, Joel Coen, are multiple Oscar-winning American filmmakers who have written and directed a number of acclaimed motion pictures, includingRaising Arizona,Blood Simple,Fargo, and the 2007 Best Picture Academy Award winner,No Country for Old Men.

Editorial Reviews

“The discriminating viewer who enjoyed [Coen’s] distinctive and quirky films will like the equally unconventional Gates of Eden. Coen delights in juxtaposing tone, character, and settin to comic and chilling effect.”
