Nice Things Said Re: EWN

    "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

    No need to look for deep meanings. It's a take-off on The Satyricon of Petronius Arbiter, a work of which only fragments survive. Petronius writes in very racy Latin prose. I was shooting for something similar, in English.

    Thanks! While I would rarely ask an author for an explanation (mainly out of the embarrassment of having to admit I didn't understand), I'm glad you did--based on your description, I think you nailed it--the fragments, the racy prose.

    Appreciate your stopping by here and helping a guy out.
