The Knobs

by Daniel Elijah Sanderfer

Allure, like the heat of the night or an enchanted song it calls to us. It gets inside of us and thrives where our demons hide. Desire, a forbidden taboo that you and I never knew before. What are we here for? What is it that we seek from life? Is it money or fame? Is it someone to blame for all the mistakes we’ve made? Is it a companion or just a guiltless rendezvous under the protective shadows of the night? Whatever it might be, I’m sure you can find it here.

Nestled high above the hustle and bustle of the city below lies a town, it’s like any other Midwestern town. Elegant antebellum houses neatly line the country highway that traces its way through the heart of the Indiana countryside. But deep inside the heart of this sleepy town lie secrets that could unravel the fragile thread that connects the families that live there. It’s a twisted society intricately woven into suburban life. It’s a love that dare not speak its name, lest it derails the fragile engine that runs the train of family life. No one is immune from the call and there’s no escape from the desires that haunt you in your sleep.

Some people say it’s a sinful orgy of infidelity and betrayal, a temptuous drink on a hot summer day. Others say everyone involved is going to hell. But the ones who say that are just the poor unfortunate souls that weren’t lucky enough to be invited to the party. I for one say don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. This is The Knobs.

Join Daniel Elijah Sanderfer for this epic tale of love and lies fit for a reality TV show. Bask in this soap operaesque style novella sideshow filled with drama, betrayal, desire, and life.
