Jim Cartwright gets under the skin,
This review is from: Supermarket Supermodel (Hardcover)
This is a great read from a great writer; Cartwright brings characters to life in a way few others can. His Linda and her many encounters live and breath and you can hear them and even smell them through his writing!
This story like a great fairy tale takes an innocent character through grotesque experiences and emerges with a simple message of hope for all those from humble beginnings...but beware the path you choose in life as there are frightening consequences for the unwary. Cartwright never misses a beat as he tells the story in first person perspective; you know it is good because you even slip into her accent as you read!
What will he write about next?...I want to hear more and see more and experience more of his world and the intense characters that inhabit his mind.
