We are having a great response to advance reading copies of our spring 2017 titles, including this fabulous endorsement of duncan b. barlow’s The City, Awake from Christian TeBordo. As a long-time admirer of David Ohle’s Motorman and The Age of Sinatra, it’s wonderful for me to see him invoked here:
“At times, duncan b. barlow’s The City, Awake evokes the kind of atmospheric suspense I associate with the great noir writer David Goodis. At others, I thought of another David — Ohle — the weird, visionary author of Motorman. barlow’s remarkable accomplishment here is in welding together disparate genre elements to create a fast-paced literary thriller that depicts an authentically absurd and violent world, while offering hope through resistance and hardboiled compassion.” — Christian TeBordo, Author of Toughlahoma, The Awful Possibilities, and We Go Liquid.
