McNeill

The blurbs continue to roll in for James Reich's upcoming novel Mistah Kurtz!, coming from AOP in early 2016. Here's the latest from Malcolm Mc Neill, artist and author of Observed While Falling: Bill Burroughs, Ah Pook, and Me:

"I kept stopping to reread sentences and sometimes whole paragraphs—not because they were difficult to understand, but I couldn't believe the writing was that good. It's an incredibly well-crafted, uniquely insightful book. Mr. Reich set himself a formidable task and he accomplished it with a masterful piece of fiction.”

Blurb

Matt Bell has written a great blurb for James Reich's Mistah Kurtz!:

"In Heart of Darkness, Marlow tells us that Kurtz's voice 'rang to the very last,' hiding 'in the magnificent folds of eloquence the barren darkness of his heart.' In Mistah Kurtz!, James Reich turns back the clock to give that eloquence fresh room, bringing to new life one of the great characters of literature by channeling Kurtz's insistent voice directly onto every inch of these fantastic pages."

Bell is the author of Scrapper, In the House Upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods and Cataclysm Baby. Misty Kurtz! will be out in early 2016.
