More and More unto the Perfect Day

A literary crime novel, by Ray Harvey

Nothing is as it seems under the sharp western sun. After recovering from an enigmatic and near-fatal illness, Gasteneau, a man with an iron will, suddenly glimpses something so extraordinary and so horrific that he feels his life irrevocably altered. But did he really see what he thinks he saw?

In the aftermath of his sickness, he is drawn deeper into a resolution he made just prior to getting sick: to seek out a piece of evidence that shows with certainty God's hand at work upon the earth. But in seeking this evidence, he finds instead that he's growing more and more obsessed by the loss of his mother, whom he barely knew, and is pursued as well by a ghostly figure in black and a feeling of hypochondria he can neither shake, nor fully define.

Part mystery story, part literary crime, More and More unto the Perfect Day is at its core a tale of philosophical intrigue, a metaphysical thriller that combines the surreal descriptions of Nabokov with the psychological complexity of Dostoevsky. The result is a novel of dreamlike strangeness and philosophical power.

"Ray Harvey is a special writer, whose work will do what fine fiction must: take you on a journey from which you return transformed and renewed, seeing this world differently because of the world he has created. It is always heartening to find a new storyteller, and we can only hope that there will be more stories to come."

— Nicholas Christopher, author of Veronica and Trip to the Stars

"Uncanny. Like viewing the world through smoked glass."

— Chilton Williamson Jr., author of The Homestead and Mexico Way

"Cinematic and strange -- and not quite like anything I've ever read."

— Pat Hartman, author of Call Someplace Paradise and Ghost Town

"A brilliant tour-de-force."
