What if everything in the world began in the Garden of Eden? And if so, what else may have happened there that we have not been told about? In this hypothetical, Garden, not everything was as idyllic as we may have been led to believe. For one thing, temptation and the Fall of Man occurred in the Garden. Also self-doubt, marital struggles, intolerance toward homosexuality and race, as well as other issues that continue unresolved in the modern day, could have had their seeds in the Garden. Dotted with deliberate anachronisms and magic realism, humorous to some, outrageous or irreverent to others, blasphemous, perhaps, to more than a few, Wicked Eden is meant to provoke some thought, stir some controversy, and invite the reader to self-reflection and the analysis of one's own belief system, or lack thereof. And also to wade in the wickedness of the Garden.
