Review from a Transgressive Fiction Fan
Oh, how I’d missed Jude, my biggest literary crush since Marla Singer or Lauren Hynde (though, she could dismember both with her bare hands). Just a mind blowingly good novel. I absolutely loved ‘Kiss Me, Judas’, and was very skeptical at everyone who told me the other books in the trilogy were even better, but after reading them, I completely agree. ‘Hell’s Half Acre’ was definitely my favorite of the three, and that’s saying something. I genuinely wish I could have my memory erased in some kind of ‘Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind’ procedure so I could read this trilogy all over from scratch. Now that Craig Clevenger has finally finished his new novel ‘Mother Howl’, all we can do is hope Baer releases ‘Godspeed’ sometime this decade. Godspeed, Will Baer, Godspeed.
“Insightful” Review from a Mainstream Reader
The bi polar adventures of Phineas Poe and his cast of crazy, strange characters….
Will Baer is one hell of a writer, but this character, and his companions, are really getting tiresome as are his increasingly twisted, convoluted plots….
I won’t follow up on this cast. But would like to continue to read Baer. What a conundrum….
