Read in January, 2008

It's rare to read an author for the first time and to have the feeling that you are going to read everything they've ever done. Facing the Music is a powerful collection of short stories. Brown doesn't shy away from showing you the ugliness in human beings or in the hands that the world can deal them. He can be brutally honest and won't show you the light at the end of the tunnel if there isn't one. I was impressed with how well developed the characters were in these shorts. I'm looking forward to seeing how he can tackle a novel.
