Synopses & Reviews
Aldo Zoria, a successful commercial photographer, lives with his wife and their lover in a happy household that includes the lovers two young children. Domestic bliss shatters when an unexpected guest arrives and threatens to turn their world upside down. Found Objects is a novel about the struggle between values and instincts, ideas and reality, whom we strive to become and whom we were born to be.
In this fluent, engaging novel, Peter Gelfan penetrates a modern familys domestic arrangement and exposes in keen, artful detail what happens when it comes under threat and begins to unravel. A wise, rueful tale for our times, unerringly told, by a masterful writer.”
Tony Cohan, bestselling author of Canary, On Mexican Time, and Valparaiso
Peter Gelfan's debut novel is a thought-provoking, sophisticated exploration of an unconventional domestic arrangement. With spare, finely tuned writing and authentic, witty dialogue, Gelfan breathes real life into his photographer protagonist and creates a story that manages to feel highly surprising, even shocking, yet be absolutely familiar. It's sexy, slyly funny, and highly readable. Found Objects works its way subtly into your conformist consciousness and then carries you, enthralled and believing, right to the last page.”
