A Rose is a Rose is a Rose

Rose Hunter, author of the forthcoming poetry collection To The River (ADP, 2010), recently reviewed my novella Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom. Here's a sampling:

"'s a quirky book. In all the best ways. It's also an immensely entertaining read. There's an understatedness to the self-deprecating narrator/author, David, that's the perfect match for the chaos he's at work producing, yay metafiction! - and a delightful (hmm that may be the first time I've used that word on my blog but it seems apt here) sweetness - to him, and the book as a whole. His dream girl creation Samantha, is a force, exactly as the narrator wants her to be, except when she isn't...and the story becomes a wonderful commentary on the process of writing; the unpredictable nature of the creation of character, and falling in love with the characters you create."
