Selected Works

Novel
a wryly comic coming-of-age story that uses the model of our smart, sensitive primate cousins to take a closer look at adolescence, masculinity, and what it means to be human
a literary mystery about home, abandonment, and disconnection triggered by the discovery of a near-dead newborn in a trash can
Randolph Splitter's The Ramadan Drummer opens as a conventional (but compelling) mystery... At the same time, Splitter's mystery goes much deeper. In his novel, he explores questions of faith and fanaticism—and of love's ability to transcend both... The book soars because of its honest engagement with human complexity. —Mark Brazaitis, author of many books of fiction and poetry, including The River of Lost Voices: Stories from Guatemala, Julia & Rodrigo, and Truth Poker
      The Ramadan Drummer is an ingenious detective novel set in the contact zone of cultures in an unnamed American city, where violence is always possible but where humanity endures. Splitter tackles the great issues of our time with wit and vision, and I couldn’t put this novel down. —Elizabeth Mckenzie, author of Stop That Girl, MacGregor Tells the World, and The Portable Veblen
