As Nick Bitzas writes, Henry “is a dark psychological comedy told in vignettes consisting of dialogue”. It’s an experimental piece, but one that I think you will find very... More > rewarding. Nick Bitzas does very well to pull off this novel way of writing over 30 pages. The protagonist, Henry, is very much an anti-hero, but you can’t help but be stimulated by the crazy world in which he lives. Although Nick Bitzas uses only dialogue, his excellent characterisation skills superbly draw the characters that make up Henry’s world, such as his best friend Jeffrey, who wants to write a dictionary that explains what people really mean when they talk with each other, and Henry’s possessive mother, who needs someone to be the man of their house, now that Henry’s father has passed away. Henry is a story that forces the reader to become fully engaged, as the reader does have to do some work to follow this challenging but rewarding narrative.< Less
"Clearly, Mike Cloud Devine had fun writing this book, and anyone who reads it will share in that joy..."
“...Anyone who has ever wondered just who are the keepers and... More > who the inmates in a world gone mad will find this witty novel an absolute delight.”
“Devine...has created a new western myth. This is no myth of taciturn cowboys and clinging-vine school marms. If you would like a hard close look at how the western community of Bidnith is based on Slamdammit Mondaymentalist fanaticism and cold hard cash, Henry is your man.”
Mike deftly captures the nuances of modern life in the rural West, using subtle humor to skew notions of sacred and profane, of sanity and madness, til life in the Asylum seems downright normal. He creates in Henry McCool a charmer, and his characterization of the culture clash between locals and the world of Bidnith strikes just the right notes.
