Kassten Alonso's new novel, The Pet Thief, out March 2013 by Fiction Collective 2.

"Just as the characters found in The Pet Thief are deranged biological recombinants, so is the formidable form of this dystopic novel: worsted, unzipped, reraveled, and hooked. Kassten Alonso fracks the mother tongue. This book is one mean meaning."

—Michael Martone, author of Four for a Quarter

"Kassten Alonso takes the reader on a wild ride inside the mind of a profoundly disturbed man as he descends into madness and violence. A beautifully written book. Impossible to put down."

—James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces

Core: a Romance is Kassten Alonso’s first novel, and was an Oregon Book Awards finalist in 2005. Core was published by Hawthorne Books.
