Okay, here we go, the professional journals are starting to weigh in on The Fall (September, Macmillan). Kirkus Reviews has a reputation for bringing the snark, for the unkindest cut, so it’s always good to get out unflayed, skin intact. In truth, I’ve found that they’ve been fair to me and I am grateful for the critical attention.
Thank you, Kirkus, whoever you are!
Actually — the truth — I’m never happy unless I get a star. I want to write great books. I want people to think they are great books. And I mean, by “people,” folks other than my beautiful, 89-year-old mother.
That’s the aspiration anyway.

“With its timely, important message and engaging prose style, Sam’s journal ought to find a large readership.”
