Nice Things Said Re: EWN

  • "Dan Wickett is serious about a good read. But the EWN email list doesn't just deliver his sure-footed reviews; it also brings you news and connections to other writers. Sign up now - he understands what readers want to know about books." Quinn Dalton, author, Bulletproof Girl

    "Mr. Wickett is that rarely heard from but best of all possible reviewers - the dedicated and knowledgeable fan. He writes clean-cutting and fresh reviews that represent a sensibility unspoiled by over-exposure to the biz of books, but deeply in love with them." Daniel Woodrell, author, Winter's Bone
  • 3.
    "Dan Wickett is a reader's best friend. Not only does he read and trenchantly review new work, but he looks back to books that deserve ongoing readership. I've lost track of the number of times he's led me to boks that I overlooked (or never knew about), and that were a delight. There aren't many reviewers I will let shape my library, but Dan Wickett is one." Erin McGraw, author, The Baby Tree

    A wonderful tribute, Dan.

    John Domini

    Dan, condolences. Maybe Shelley offers a comfort: she "has outsoared the shadow of our night."

    M Sarki

    Very nice, Dan. Sorry for your loss.

    Katrina Denza

    I'm sorry for your loss, Dan.

    I love that your mother read the end of her books before the second chapter.


    Jon Horton

    Condolences. Losing a parent is a psychic shock, no matter how well prepared one thinks he is. Best.

    Myfanwy Collins

    Sorry for your loss, Dan. This is a beautiful tribute.


    Hugs to you and your family, Dan. I lost my father a year ago Saturday, and I still miss him. Your post is a wonderful tribute to her -- your love is evident, as is hers. Peace...


    Much love, Dan. Very sorry to hear this.

    Sarah Layden

    Very sorry for your loss. What an amazing legacy your mother left behind.


    What a great post about your mom, Dan. Thankfully, I know she knew how much you cared, and how much you appreciated her. Thanks for sharing that with us too.

    Anna Clark

    Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this news, Dan, but I'm so glad to hear about what an amazing person she was. This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    Roy Kesey

    I'm very sorry, Dan. Thank you for this beautiful tribute to her.


    Once I decide I like a book and will finish it, usually about 10-15 pages in, I always read the last page to find out what happens! The only time this has ever backfired on me was Salman Rushdie's Shalimar the Clown.

    My thoughts are with you, Dan.

    David McLendon

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss, Dan, and thanks so much for sharing this nice and fitting tribute.


    Dan, I'm so sorry. Wishing you peace and comfort.
