IS THERE ANYBODY GOING TO LISTEN TO MY STORY...?

A pleasant surprise showed up today. Colleen Mondor has reviewed Have You Seen the Horizon Lately? over at Bookslut. It's a lengthy, thorough, and highly positive review, so you should read the whole thing; just to tease, though, here is a highlight:

"Have You Seen the Horizon Lately? is a look into the literary jet set, the sort of life that demands no regrets or apologies from the players who live in its limelight. It’s a unique story told in an undeniably cool way. Rich taps into a sensibility that makes one want to write enigmatic novels that grad students will endlessly argue about but likely never understand. He knows who we all want to be and shows us what that would be like. The fact that it isn’t a necessarily happy story is immaterial, it is still a true one and at its heart, a hopeful one. There is just something about Jamie S. Rich that makes him a writer to watch."

Buy the book at Amazon: Have You Seen the Horizon Lately?

Or drop me a line. I still have copies.
