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

    "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

    Powerful story, TJ. It's great to read it again. Bill

    This is a heart wrenching and beautiful story, TJ. The end took my breath away. Not only is the writing exquisite, but it's full of emotional truths. My husband died of AIDS, and I know all about hospices. From someone who knows the score, thank you for writing this. Bonnie

    TJ Forrester

    Thanks Dan, Bill, and Bonnie!

    Shari Blume

    Magnificent story, TJ. I just want to inhale the writing, it's so beautiful.

    When I read T. J. Forrester's work I'm always amazed that he knows what he knows and can find the exact words, always fresh, to describe it. Besides the original voice and strong plot that carry each of his stories, there's the rhythm--the way he alternates inventive and funny descriptions with dialogue that brings the reader up short. Finally, there are the interior monologues that pull me into the heartbreak of all Forrester's characters. In The Revolving Door all of the players, have tender souls if not compassionate hearts.

    Excellent story, T.J.!

    Michael Leone

    Fantastic story!

    T. J. Forrester

    Michael, Kat, Barbara, and Shari--thank you!
