"Everything Fails by T Van Santana is an outrageous, defiant, scandalous piece of work. This book outrages our complacency, defies our expectations, and the scandal is that there are not more books like this one. I can think of only two novels that have impressed me in this way: Imajica by Clive Barker, and Dhalgren by Samuel R. Delaney, yet Everything Fails is as different from those two books as they are from each other. T's unique voice is an intense combination of rawness and sophistication—and voice is the the perfect word to describe writing that is the sound of people speaking their own evocative language, telling their story with an honesty that challenges the reader."

"Engaging & skillfully crafted. I'm slowly consuming this masterpiece. It's a beautiful work of art."
HKB FiNN, director of Stash
"An intriguing read with just about ... everything: action, sex, humor, and horror ... from the viewpoint of a complex protagonist ... dealing with many issues: relationships, career, and self-revelation ... The postmodern treatment takes it outside genre writing, and I find the bravery of the author exciting. This isn't a safe write or read ... it is fun, but it will challenge your expectations ... a good literary novel engages you with the mind of the author, and Van Santana is someone whose mind is well worth the time."
Beau Vent, author of Sensenderfer: to the Moon! and Trump!: A Hamilton Parody
