5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous book, a heartbreak between two covers, 29 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Hindenburg Crashes Nightly (Hardcover)
How else to describe Greg Hrbek's prose than with the adjectives of beauty, love, desire? His writing is not merely poetic, but somehow onomatopoeic -- the sound of the words are interpreted as pure emotion for the reader. His writing is not only read, but experienced.
But do we always want to feel the powerful emotion Hrbek creates in this book? For it slowly becomes clear that below the surface of Tom and Lindsey's passion will take the pain, the guilt, the searing truth of betrayal and heartbreak -- we'll take it, because in exchange Hrbek gives us the gift of shared inspiration. From Tom's original loss, to Lindsey's childhood violation, to Matt's headlong dive into the welcoming waters of insanity, Hrbek makes clear that in his world, only suffering breeds beauty.
And lucky for us. A writer of literature, in the truest sense, Greg Hrbek is more than just a young writer to take note of -- he's a literary star about to be born.
