    The Leaves Are Falling

    John Jollife from The Tablet reviewed The Leaves Are Falling:

    This is the story of Josef, a Jewish boy who miraculously escapes from the devastation of wartime Lithuania, having lost all his family through the twin genocides carried out by the Nazis and the Russians…. In an important sense, England was not a part of Europe during the war, but adjacent to it. However much we suffered in the bombing and the fighting, we never knew invasion or occupation, or had to face the terrible choice between resistance and collaboration. And, of course, thanks to the Americans and the Russians, we were on the winning side. The worst of the horrors took place in Eastern Europe, and since they were hardly reported here when other dangers and disasters were so much nearer at hand, we were able to turn a blind eye. So as well as being a sensitive and evocative story, Beckett’s novel is a salutary eye-opener on what the eastern half of Europe suffered, and on what moulded its future for the next fifty years. And although it is an acutely personal story, like her sensitive and gripping previous novel, A Postcard from the Volcano, set in pre-war Germany, it reveals more of the truth about the twentieth century than many a textbook collection of facts can hope to do.

    More bloggers are raving about our novels!

    Tobit's Dog     The Leaves Are Falling    The Rising

    Nancy Ward and Kelly Hansen reviewed Tobit’s Dog:

    Tobit’s Dog is a love story amid the battle between heaven and hell for the souls of the good guys as well as the racists, murderers, rapists, thieves and connivers not portrayed in the biblical version of the Book of Tobit. In this imaginary take on the Book of Tobit, exciting enough a tale, Richard skillfully uses the characters, symbols, and scriptural principles. All the vital elements are there: Tobit’s sudden blindness and miraculous healing. Prejudice and bravery — this time, involving a lynching and Tobiah’s arrest for his compassion toward the boy hanging from a tree…. Reading the Book of Tobit a little along with Tobit’s Dog brought me great pleasure and insight into the plots of both books. The Book of Tobit, however, has no holy water from Lourdes, Negro nuns or KKK. Read more »

    The Rising: A Review

    May 21, 2014 11:45 am Leave a Comment

    Superpowers. We’re fascinated by them.  We buy books (usually comic books) and flock to movies that feature humans with extraordinary strength, or speed, or mobility, or whatever. The image of the super-man, whatever “super” might mean, rivets our imagination. (I discuss this in an earlier post.) To me, our appreciation… Read more »
