5.0 out of 5 stars Transparent Writing, 26 Oct 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Pig (Paperback)
Andrew Cowan seems to effortlessly guide you around a coming of age story. He creates so beautifully, achingly, in the lines and between the lines. As much can be gleaned by what he doesn't say in this novel. His transparent writing allows the reader to be the characters, to connect with the story at a deeper level. He strips away writerly conceits and leaves you gasping at beauty. It will melt you after it slaps you across the face and sticks your nose in stench. The characters are intimate and tender. A masterful achievement. You can read this novel to understand the power of 'transparent writing'. I ordered his latest book, 'What I know', the day after finishing this.
