Of gospels and spoilers

Just had a couple of things published. First of all, a book review I wrote for Switchback, a literary journal produced by the University of San Francisco. I reviewed Courttia Newland’s new novel, The Gospel According to Cane, which is about a mother whose baby is kidnapped from a parked car, and what happens when a man turns up two decades later claiming to be her long-lost son. Click here to read the review.

I’m also guest posting on Read.Learn.Write, arguing that book bloggers and reviewers spend far too much time worrying about spoilers and that it inhibits us from talking about the most interesting parts of a book. Chip in with your take on spoilers here.

  1. Alas, your link does not lead to the review but to a website about story consulting. I was hoping to read the review as I have this book on my TBR pile. My initial thoughts is that it’s not well written and I’m not sure I can cope with the writing style!
