Vincent Ettrich, an engaging philanderer, discovers that he has died and come back to life - but he has no idea why, or any memory of the experience. Beset by peculiar omens and strange characters, including a talking rat and an inexplicable tattoo on the neck of his most recent lover, he gradually discovers that he was deliberately brought back by his one true love, Isabelle, because she is pregnant with their son - a child who, if correctly raised, will play a crucial role in saving the cosmic mosaic that is the universe. But to be brought up right, he must be educated by his own father. Specifically, he must be taught what Ettrich learned on the other side - if only Ettrich himself can remember it! Tempting and provocative, "White Apples" is forbidden fruit plucked straight from the orchard of Jonathan Carroll's abundant and legendary imagination. 'Jonathan Carroll is as scary as Hitchcock, when he isn't being as funny as Jim Carrey' - Stephen King.

White Apples is the beginning of a new trilogy from Carroll, and with new beginnings he's decided to modify his modus operandi from previous novels. To start with, gone is the first-person, unreliable male narrator; in its place is a third-person omniscient voice that is both strangly familiar and d...
