About this title


When the Truth Is All That Matters The truth begins with a family evacuated from Saigon during the final days of the Viet Nam War. Or perhaps it begins later, with a devoutly Catholic child with the voice of an angel who is troubled by visions both sacred and profane. Or perhaps later still, with a couple drifting apart following a tragedy. Kelland appears to them all in the guise of a small boy, a lover, a priest...Kelland is an enigma, a puzzle, and an almost imperceptible presence. Kelland is violence, sorrow, and joy. Kelland is the common thread tying five disparate strangers together.


Beautifully written, a kaleidoscope of finely drawn characters and an unfolding mystery that reveals the hope and horror in the human heart. --Alan Brennert, Author of Honolulu and Moloka'i

Kelland is an engaging read with characters that simply won't let go of you. If this is a first novel, Paul Bens has a fine literary career ahead of him. -- Noel Alumit, Author of Letters to Montgomery Clift and Talking to the Moon

...reminiscent of Stephen King...[Bens] is an author to watch... --Karen L. Newman, Dark Discoveries Magazine, September 2009

"Kelland" is one of the most perplexing, and rewarding, novels you're likely to read... --Kilian Melloy, Edge Magazine, September 2009

Kelland doesn't rest on gimmicky thrills and revelations, but there are some ah-ha! moments reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan's better the story's end, you realize Bens hasn't wasted a single word. --Lydia Thorne, Uniquely Pleasurable, September 2009

Kelland is likely to be the best book you might not read this year...And that would be a sincere shame...[Kelland is] a gorgeous, genre-defying novel of heartrending truth, a work that builds slowly and confidently toward a page-turning climax that will leave you breathless in anticipation of the inevitable events one is never quite sure how will play out.
