“If a novel is a map to emotions, Maybe Kevin (part Faulkner, part “How I Met Your Mother”) takes you on a compelling trip, teasing you with the truth, all while excavating the layered reality of a family. It left me sobbing. But the good kind of sobbing, where you also feel relieved,” says comedian Wendy Liebman. “I sat down to read a chapter but instead read the whole thing and cried like a baby. Surgically constructed art with words, Maybe Kevin is a masterpiece. Whether a joke or a novel, Brian Kiley is my favorite writer. I’ll read all the words he puts together.”
