    "A fast, complex, exhilarating roadster ride through history and time.... Kino is an intoxicating Euro-brew, written with enormous skill and dedication." — Frederick Barthelme

    "Jürgen Fauth's deft mashup of genre and historical period is both a full-throttle literary thriller of ideas and a contemplative examination of film and fascism. Kino is a debut of great intellectual  force."– Teddy Wayne

    "A surprising alternative history. Kino brings the golden age of German cinema to light with loving, sometimes gritty, detail and great precision." – Neal Pollack, author of Jewball.

    "A delirious melange of conspiracy, magic, sex, history, bad behavior, and cinema, Kino is a stellar entertainment, and Jürgen Fauth is a writer of rare, sinister imagination." – Owen King, author of Reenactment

    "A light-hearted romp that leads straight into darkness and back through the shadows on the wall."– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

New Reviews from Necessary Fiction and DBC|Reads

At Necessary Fiction, Michelle Bailat-Jones writes:

Kino is a messy, wonderful, loopy romp of a novel. Written in an easy style conducive to breakneck reading and filled with cinematographic trivia, falsified histories, real histories, political criticism, romance, car chases, airport bomb threats, copious amounts of narcotic substances and a 92-year-old foul-mouthed ex-starlet. And that covers just about the half of it.

And at DBC|Reads (“Because there aren’t enough book blogs”), Marnie Shure says:

A completely unpretentious period piece… an adventure steeped in the tragic details of the postwar world, but still a book that somehow manages an overall funness.
