The Nix

Nathan Hill

Growing up, Samuel's mother, Faye, told him of the Nix who in Norwegian folklore is a spirit on a white horse that steals children. The tale is to teach that "the things you love the most will one day hurt you the worst". Unfortunately, this moral comes true when Faye abandons 11 year old Samuel. Now he's an English professor who would rather spend time escaping through the online game, Elfquest. One day he sees his mother in the news after she is arrested for throwing stones at an ultraconservative presidential candidate. He begins digging into her past in an effort to save her and himself in the process. This multi-layered story weaves generations affected by war, social change, and secrets into a fast paced darkly humorous work of art.
