“Up devastating shit creek with a literary paddle.” – Real-Time Review of ‘Small Man Syndrome’ continues…

Small Man CoverD.F. Lewis’s Real-Time review of my novel Small Man Syndrome continues apace. After I brought you Des’s rave notices for the opening two chapters in yesterday’s blog, I’m now delighted to be able to showcase the highlights of his commentary on chapters three and four.

Chapter Three:

“I do need however to express the power of the text’s description of what evolves (…). The style is indeed powerful, often incantatory, with sharp turns of phrase and biting ricochets. This book, I repeat, is Updike or Roth – you know, rather than Horror genre. And that’s good. Up devastating shit creek with a literary paddle.”

Chapter Four:

“…this is an accessibly-expressed page-turning thriller with certain depths for the reader to explore or not to explore according to their temperament as a reader. ”

Catch up with the latest bite-sized-chunky updates from Des here.
