The ending surprised me. I enjoyed reading the novel, but that ending, man. Woah. After finishing the novel, I get this Great Gatspy feel. Winslow performs something of a deconstruction of the life of the privileged and powerful….I listened to this via audible.com and enjoyed Winslow’s snappy, hip, minimalistic prose. A good read with a gripping conclusion.
Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy, as the Executive Director of the Wrangell Mountain Center. When not in McCarthy, you'll typically find me in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, writing and working with local activists. My primary writing project right now is a novel set in remote bush Alaska, of the magical realism genre wherein an earnest and independent young woman finds a mysterious radio belonging to her grandmother, a device that has paranormal bandwidth and a disturbing ability to mess with one's mental stability.
