John Olson Reviews An Dantomine Eerly

John Olson is one of the most astute reviewers and writers in Seattle. His use of language is virtuosic. Today he takes on the work of a 24 year old novelist, Jarret Middleton. Here’s an excerpt of the review:

What I like best about this book is the notion that our largest adventures, our noblest conflicts, do not occur in the trenches of actual warfare or scaling, with frost-bitten fingers to the tops of Himalayan peaks, but occur within, are conflicts of self and soul, Eros and Thanatos.
