Jim Harrison recommends
The Mango Opera (1998)
(Alex Rutledge, book 1)
Tom Corcoran
"THE MANGO OPERA is a very engrossing novel. Corcoran deftly evokes the spirit and physicality of the place, the low tide jubilance and enlivening fetor of its pleasures and instinctive criminality, as if the sun and ocean had blasted all the flowers of evil into its very genes."
The Contract Surgeon (1999)
Dan O'Brien
"There is an aura that ghosts of the Sioux made him write this book, [which] should bring O'Brien to the wide audience he deserves."
Moody Food (2002)
Ray Robertson
"An engrossing novel, beautifully written."
Fire Point (2004)
John Smolens
"Fire Point put my teeth on edge from the first page and kept them there until I finished. Smolens is a fine writer with a profound knowledge of human behaviour gone awry."
The Lost Thoughts of Soldiers (2005)
Delia Falconer
"A splendid and absorbing novel."
