Author of The Marriage of True Minds, published May 2008 by Unbridled Books (http://www.redroom.com/publishedwork/the-marriage-true-minds).
“Stephen Evans’ first novel, The Marriage of True Minds, is a funny, poignant, oddly beautiful book about three divergent life forms—animals, people, and lawyers. You will love it if you read it with a true mind.”—Kinky Friedman
"Poignant and outrageous, moving and profound, Evans' delectable debut novel thrums with zesty dialogue and a memorably zany cast of irresistable characters." —Booklist
"A magician never tells how his magic works, and we don’t want to know. But Stephen Evans’ first novel gives us all the pieces to put together. Propelled by a dramatist’s humorous and ironic dialogue, it’s not just romance or political satire, but a tale of magic realism. We read it on a summer afternoon and laugh. Then we go back and read it again and marvel. " - Internet Review of Books
"Evans writes throughout with a sense of refreshing humor, and the snappy repartee between the two leads is also very funny and fun. But beneath this slim volume packed with a lot of heart and humor lurks a very real question: Is Nick really delusional? As Nick himself blithely admits: 'I don't make plans. I have visions.'" —ForeWord
"Evans demonstrates his playwright’s mastery of dialogue and tension in his accomplished and whimsical first novel about love and the bizarre behavior it ignites." —Publishers Weekly
"...through mentally ill protagonists, comic book heroes and plenty of good lines, playwright Stephen Evans delivers in his debut novel an oddly serious message that has little to do with saving the world and is more of a reminder to save ourselves...Evans is quite the imagineer, and his novel is well worth an afternoon read." —LA Times
