"A sense of being hunted, and haunted, hits you right from the start of I Am The River. That mood only grows in intensity as the scope of this novel's nightmare takes shape. It's supernatural and geopolitical and an unforgettable time." - Victor LaValle, author The Ballad of Black Tom"Grau's poetic prose and stunning evocation of time and place...from the killing fields of Vietnam to the haunted alleyways of Bangkok, form a fever dream of copious bloodshed and many shades of gray." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"I Am The River is the kind of thing that might happen if Algernon Blackwood had been brought in to do a rewrite of Apocalypse Now. A man barely holding onto his sanity in Bangkok remains haunted, stalked by a huge hound and undone by his own addiction. His only way out is through revisiting his past in the Vietnam War and the secret PSY-OPS mission he was involved in-and which he's been running from ever since. A haunting meditation on war, death, addiction, and responsibility, with mindblowing forays into the weird." - Brian Evenson, author of A Collapse of Horses and The Warren"T.E. Grau's blazing, immersive novel takes us on the hell-ride of the Vietnam War's last days as its raging waters also carry us through the first of our last days. I Am The River is a hallucinatory tour de force." - Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Cabin at the End of the World"An intelligent accumulation of inner and outer darkness." - Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual"A lush green nightmarish journey into the dark, reminiscent of the late, great Lucius Shepard." - Ben Loory, author of Tales of Falling and Falling
