“The Bird's Nest is at times serious and funny. It reads like a fast-paced thriller without sacrificing the sumptuous language and fully developed characters readers expect from a piece of literary fiction."

John Shors

Bestselling author of Beneath a Marble Sky.

"Having explored India myself, I'm impressed with Kenneth's knowledge of Indian society. It's evident that he spent quite a bit of time navigating what is a complex and nuanced culture."

Rick Fedrizzi

CEO and Founding Chair / U.S. Green Building Council

Using LEED as the tool choice, Ken and EMSI have long been on the front lines of how we fundamentally transform our built environment into the healthy, high-performing future we all imagine. He's been instrumental in advancing green building in the emerging economies of India and China, so his debut novel of about a green architect in India is bound to ring true to those who seek to change the world.
