Review: THE NIGHT BEFORE KRAMPUS by Peter Johnson

THE NIGHT BEFORE KRAMPUS is glorious! A contemporary magical fable with overtones of the Brothers Grimm, Old World fables and legends, and even classical Greek and Cretan mythology, this novel is also a medieval-style morality play and cautionary tale. In a contemporary culture that praises youth and "beauty" and the celebration of celebrity while condoning greed and selfishness and closing its eyes to serial killing, genocide, and gun violence, we all need to be reminded of the Bigger Picture: of the true nature of good vs. evil, of the possibilities of the triumph of good, and simultaneously of the microcosm that composes each human life, and of the importance of each choice we each make in discerning good from evil. Wow--this is life-changing.
