Robert Kloss’s The Alligators of Abraham is a fever dream built from the fly-strewn corpses of armies, the megalomania of generals, the madness of widows, the fires of mourning, the fury of the poor, the indifference of the wealthy, and the ravenous hissing of those alligators who have ever plagued the shores of our national nightmares. With a cover design and interior illustrations by Matt Kish, author of Tin House’s Moby-Dick in Pictures, this is a Civil War epic unlike any others.

The Alligators of Abraham based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is one of the strangest civil war novels I've ever seen. The strange prose drops the reader into something that's something part dream, part nightmare, and part madness. Skillfully crafted, it is comprehensible without being straightforwardly understandable. It rings true in the way that only something that has liberated itself from factual underpinnings can be.
