Take a gander at the wryly-titled blog In Which Our Hero, which ran this very nice review of An Age of Madness back in February but which I only noticed yesterday.
Obviously a discerning reader possessed of fine critical taste, the elusive "Keith," who is reputed to be a librarian in Los Angeles, has many fine things to say about the book. To wit:
"Maine's characters are
the novel's strong suit. Regina has a sharp and distinctive voice, and Maine's
not afraid to let her be unlikable. The principal supporting characters, Anna
and Russell ... are equally well drawn, and Maine is very
good at letting us see them through Regina's eyes in ways that let us understand
how that view might be distorting things."
Told you he was discerning...
In all seriousness, a big thanks to Keith out there in LA for taking the time to read the book and write up something about it. It's much appreciated!
