VILE MEN Review @ That Shakespearean Rag

September 23, 2015 in Vile Men, Writing

VILE MEN has received its first blog review from Steven Beattie over at That Shakespearean Rag. The review itself does contain spoilers for some of the stories (just a heads up for you spoiler-phobiacs!), but Steven does says some great things about the collection:

Vile Men traffics in dark material with a refreshingly direct approach: Jones-Howe is unafraid to confront her subject matter head-on, and the violence and sex (and frequent sexual violence) is explicit. The best of these stories demonstrate an acute psychological understanding; what is most disturbing about a character like Jonah is precisely how recognizable he is.
