Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a profound and deeply felt collection of short stories, highly recommended for those who are looking for intelligence, insight, wit and wisdom. Especially in these days of postmodern flatness, art with depth is a rarity indeed. --Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision

Review

Keith's Martin-Smith's writings have a layered nuance to them. His stories glide gracefully from his mind because they have an emotionally sensitive, hand-wrought quality that belies the sophistication of his thought. I celebrate the possibility that we will be showered with many more examples of his writings...I enthusiastically await more.

Format: Paperback
This book is a refreshing collection of short stories. When did you last read a short story? Very few authors even attempt writing in this form because it is very difficult to create great characters and interesting plots in the span of a few pages. The author was successful in doing both. I especially enjoyed the story, "A Difficult Case." Keith Martin Smith is able to write a story where the main character, a woman in a psych hospital, communicates with her doctor through her journal. The author has captured the thoughts of this women in a most believable way. He has a natural gift for writing dialog and the pace was perfect. The stories got better and better as I made my way through this book. I look forward to the next book by this talented young writer.

These stories captured me mind, body, and soul, touching on so many aspects of human experience. Each story resonated with universal appeal, and unusual for me, once I started a story, I could not put the book down until I finished it.

Words in the hands of a gifted writer can open us up to the world's suffering as well as its joys, helping us to see life through more compassionate eyes. We get to see the whole catastrophe of this glorious life and come away wiser for it. Deep appreciation for this book. Thank you.

I've been wanting to thank you, Keith, for writing your book.

In my spare minutes here and there, I've been working my way through
it. And, a few nights ago, I read The Last Musician.

It touched something in me pretty deeply...set off a series of
dominoes in my inner world. And a couple hours later, I was crying for an hour.

Your writing has a depth of insight that I rarely see these days...can't wait to read the rest of the book.
