Undermajordomo Minor by Patrick deWitt and Shiny New Books Issue 7

SBN-logoIt’s time for a brand new issue of Shiny New Books, stuffed full with reviews, interviews, features and competitions. My ownCover image contribution  is a review of Patrick deWitt’s fantastical tale, Undermajordomo Minor. For anyone who’s already read deWitt’s darkly comic ripping yarn, The Sisters Brothers, this one is entirely different but just as entertaining. It has more than a touch of the Gothic fairytale, richly cinematic in its descriptions: as I was reading it Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel kept popping into my mind. If you’d like to know more why not pay a visit to Shiny New Books where you can read my review and finds lots of other treats to cheer you up now that winter’s looming again.

      Thanks, Jacqui. It most certainly is – I was a little nervous about this one as I don’t think reviews have been uniformly warm but I enjoyed it very much.

      It doeasn’t sound as if you need any more persuasion, Poppy, but Cathy over at 746Books has just discovers the pleasures of Mr DeWitt, too.
