A delightful new review of our latest title, THE DARK MANUAL by Colin O'Sullivan! 💖✌
“The author, Winner of the Prix Mystère de la critique 2018, just gets better with each book, and with this, his third, he is becoming one of the finest storytellers out there. His prose keeps one glued to the page, with delightful concentration.
Colin O'Sullivan does not write a bad line. His characters become a part of the reader as they turn the pages, and they dwell in the mind between reads. I found myself setting the book down, two or three times, but not able to leave it until I picked it up again, and read some more. O'Sullivan's writing style reminds me so of jazz, with its one-word, then two-word, then three-word sentences. Bop, bop, bop-bop, until you realize you have read a paragraph, then onto a new riff. Powerful, humorous, poetic, emotional. He is a lyrical master of the written word.” —Marvin Minkler of Modern First Editions
