Short, but solid piece of fiction about the process of belief in America. There were no transcendent literary moments for me, but the sheer originality of Troy James Weaver's writing and the clever structure that felt like narrating someone's memory ...more
Benoit Lelievre is 23% done with After the Flood: Ben Tanzer's growing to be one of my favourite non-genre authors working today. He's a domestic tragedian. He's one of the few who can capture the melancholic beauty of saying goodbye to your youth.

“Life doesn't run away from nobody. Life runs at people.”
Joe Frazier

“Halfway through the set, the lead singer, who goes by Cloud, knife in hand, begins to stab at the cutout of Copal Brandt with a lion's passion. Out of nowhere blood is produced and Cloud proceeds to rub it all over his own face and body, then on his own bandmates. Afterwards he roars into the microphone, 'Do you know why we're doing this, McAllen? We're doing this FOR NO PARTICULAR REASON!!!!!!!!!”
Fernando A. Flores, Death to the Bullshit Artists of South Texas, Vol. 1

Jim Thompson
“It was like being asleep when you were awake and awake when you were asleep. I'd pinch myself, figuratively speaking - I had to keep pinching myself. Then I'd wake up kind of in reverse; I'd go back to the nightmare I had to live in. And everything would be clear and reasonable.”
Jim Thompson, The Killer Inside Me

Ernest Hemingway
“The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too.”
Ernest Hemingway, Men Without Women

“A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”
