4.0 out of 5 stars We need more books by this author!, 20 Nov 2006
This review is from: East of Nowhere (Paperback)
It seems remarkable that this Scrooge-like opus of rebirth and redemption isn't better known or publicized. And to have the American edition entitled: Fortune's Bastard? Not by the author, certainly!

East of Nowhere is, in my opinion, two books under one cover.

The flight from England (which begins on page 1 and airmail stamps) to Barcelona and inevitable ruination, possibly could have had some redeeming value and ended Edward Miller's plight right there. (Maybe if he had ducked that punch from the disillusioned paramour - Jordan/Tracey?)

Be that as it may, the second portion of the book is a further Candide-like journal of humiliation in redneck Florida (you'll want to see Todd Browning's Freaks after reading it).
