A Mind-Bending Odyssey into the Heart of the Human Condition

In his new novel, Fools, up-and-coming author Kol explores the depths of life’s greatest mysteries in the light of the experiences of young people teetering on the brink of either enlightenment or self-destruction.

James Christopher, Bami Easton and Ana are high school students grappling with the meaninglessness of existence by using their own vitriolic mixtures of intuition, rebellious foolishness and romantic desire. But the story is much more than a chronicle of their pursuit of happiness or their attempts to break away from society’s restrictions. Key to the novel’s firepower is the diverse angles by which it can be explored. On one layer, it is a tale of teenagers confronted with the perennial need for purpose, and on another, it is an incisive exploration of some of humankind’s most enduring dilemmas—the existence of God, the essence of truth, the meaning of life, and the slow but certain decay of society’s collective imagination.

Announcing the arrival of a searing and innovative voice, Fools is a mind-bending odyssey deep into the heart of the human condition. It is at once bleak and beautiful, unsettling and captivating, and, ultimately, the kind of exquisite literature that clings to the reader’s consciousness even after the last page has been turned.
