JRZDVLZ, by Lee Klein, author of The Shimmering Go-Between, is the autobiography of a sympathetic monster on a centuries-spanning quest for redemption.

“Propulsive, harrowing, surprisingly humorous, and heartfelt, JRZDVLZis a masterful re-imagining of one of America’s most beguiling—and now, thanks to Lee Klein, most memorable—myths. Literary wizardry at its very best.” - Matthew Vollmer, author of Gateway to Paradise
“Lee Klein’s JRZDVLZ is as ingenious and compelling a composite as the Jersey Devil itself: part bildungsroman, part travelogue, part urban history, part fable, part mythopoeic romance that’s also a profound meditation on isolation and a searing document of self-invention. Benjamin Franklin would be delighted and disturbed. Imagine a shape-shifting, immortal Elephant Man stalking the pages of Ragtime and The Sot-Weed Factor and Mason & Dixon, and you’ll have an idea of what lies within this extraordinary novel.” - Josh Emmons, author of A Moral Tale and Other Moral Tales
