Told in alternating chapters from the points of view of a motley group of residents of a town in New Mexico, A Million Heavens presents a cast of characters that are surprisingly and delightfully messed up. They come from damaged pasts and are trying to move forward. An interesting character to add...
Can you sing your way into heaven? Is there a heaven? John Brandon weaves a tale of possibilities and synchroncities that will have you turning pages, wondering where the story will turn next. Brandon is one of America's most creative young writers and I would recommend anything he has written.
Starkly beautiful, it moves slowly and builds rather than travels. It reflects the competing warmth and desolation of the desert. John Brandon handles the surreal elements with grace and balance, drawing the reader into a story rather than blinding him with flights of fantasy.
Either a 4 or a 5 star read. Review to come.
Each section opens with a description of the basic characteristics of a genre, followed by a classic example. Then a modern day example of the genre is presented with sidebars explaining parallels to classical examples. It's really fun.
