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.
