Visceral – Raw – Backwater – Shocking – Sick – Magnetic…BLACKJACK!
FSG took a BIG risk with this debut novel – and this debut novelist. A BIG RISK! Young God – A Novel – is not for everyone. Young God is really an experiment. Yet somehow – someway – it worked! This move by FSG was akin to taking a hit on 17 in blackjack…when the dealer was showing a pair of five’s.
Katherine Faw Morris is NOW a discovered, terribly unique — talent. PERIOD! I must admit this novel had me thinking “What the _____? Where’s this going? Do human beings really live, think, behave and converse like this? What do they look like?”
Bottom line…I’m looking forward to Katherine Faw Morris‘s next novel!!!
