::ABOUT THE BOOK::
Bridget had a fierce desire for survival which made her a fighter. Michael had a hankering after immortality which made him a useless dreamer. And that was the great difference between these two Austin transplants who loved each other so well.
FictionDaily w/ David Backer
The novel has a strange epic feel about it. Like something huge is happening, I’m not sure how he does it, but you get the emotion that someone is really trying to live.
There is a particular intimacy that the protagonist lets the reader in on, and I sense it in his ever so slight insecurities, a flaw that he knows how to write quite well without being overtly overbearing.
An interesting read no matter how you slice it.
Powered by a rich kind of nonlinear anti-narrative, Davidson weaves and cajoles us into believing that reality can be fiction and fiction reality, but more importantly, to stop looking for the border that divides the two.
