Cummings’s 2nd December review
Loved "The Corruptionist".
Has all the characters we have gotten to know, including Bangkok and the icy
urinal at Lonesome Hawk. Nice homage to George in the beginning as new
characters were developed. Perfect.
Takes a farang to places he would
like to go, but hopefully has the good sense to avoid (unless the basement
...of... his brain overrides logic), like protests at government house and
educates to the point of uncomfortableness re the real life 2003-2004 war on
Calvino fans are sure to
appreciate the casual references to characters and storylines from other books,
a la Kurt Vonnegut. Intelligent, complex and modern ending. I never predicted
one damn thing right, as it should be. But what I like most about your writing
is that the throwaway lines are all keepers.
