It Takes a Thief
by Niels Hammer

A mutual revelation, burglary, murder and unconditional love

Ralph, a painter, of nature and illusions, has a long enough glimpse of a thief who wakes him to fall in love with her instantly as he recognizes her natural independence. After a strenuous search, he finds her but she assaults him viciously the instant they meet.

Discovering that she has killed a man during a burglary, he leaves her with no choice but to listen to his arguments about how they were fated to meet, and to prove his integrity, he becomes her accomplice. She discovers that his absolute commitment makes her reciprocate his feelings spontaneously.

As a Post Post-Modernist novel, grounded in the felt reality of experience, it explores unconditional love, art as self-insight, the limitations of language, and the numinous behind ‘the stream of consciousness,’ but it also outlines what it means to live a life of empathy within sustainable means in a society hell-bent on self-destruction.
