Review - Potboiler by Jesse Kellerman

FicJesse Kellerman expands his soaring range with this hard to classify book which starts with the musings of a failed writer/creative writing teacher wondering if he can afford to go to the funeral of his erstwhile friend from college, a hugely successful thriller writer. I don't think I can tell you much more without revealing the surprising twists and turns in this weirdly satisfying read. Kellerman continues to exceed his early promise. Each of his novels has been unique, each explores characters with depth and interest and he has the gift to bringing to life people with age and life experience different to his own. This even contains a generous slice of post-modern existentialism. Watch out for this man and read everything he publishes. I know I will be. Wendy
