A few more early reviews

April 23, 2012

I was pleased to see that Jessica Henkle, in her Foreword review of Boarded Windows, focused on the book’s emotional aims, writing that it was populated by “people who need each other in undignified but vital ways, and this is what makes the book relatable—it is rife with humans desperate for connection, for finding their place in this enigmatic world.” Booklist had some complaints with the plot, but praised the book’s “polished prose,” which it further characterized as “witty and smart.” To the right is a picture of a young Randy Travis setting one of these reviews to music.
