Editorial Reviews

Review

" Fournier recognizes that scenes are forged by the energy of the people involved and remembered by the artistic tomes they leave behind, and nails both perspectives. It's managed to make me excited about albums both real and fake, which is no small achievement." -Sebastian Stirling, "New Artillery"


"Futuristic (at times bordering on science fiction), but looking back at the past and critiquing the present, this book's cast of characters and its narrative resembles Jennifer Egan's A Visit from the Goon Squad. Underneath, it asks important questions about technology and its role in our lives." Matt Berlyant, The Big Takeover

Format: Paperback
Hidden Wheel finds a great balance between being fun and giving you something to think about. I'm not an artist but I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in the thoughts of these artist characters. Reading this novel was a unique ride with characters that made me feel young again. One of them spoke only in long and ranty run-on sentences but I'll forgive the author for it this time because the novel as a whole was such a quick, fun read. Did I mention that it's not only fun but also funny? I'm picky about the fiction I read and will only put up with less-than-wonderful writing from non-fiction. Hidden Wheel did not let me down. Now I'm left wondering what the cover image means and whether there is a whole genre of "Drummers' Lit?"

Format: Paperback
Honestly, I don't read a lot of contemporary fiction. I had my doubts about this one in the first few pages, but it's one of those books you have to learn how to read as you go along. Partway through, you'll find yourself realizing that it's a lot more tightly constructed than it looks--and funnier. It's got fantasy, satire, real human feeling, and a little easter-egg Vonnegut homage tucked away neatly into the plot.

I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the synopsis, but I was not surprised to find a funny, well-written novel with a cast of real characters that each had their own unique voice. At first I was not a fan of the format as it was not always easy to figure out which character was narrating each passage, but after I got used to it I enjoyed it, even the ramblings of Max.
