A debut novel like this one only comes around a few times every decade, and it is the kind of novel that will be revered for generations for bringing another literary giant out into the world.
M. F. Sullivan has, in Delilah, My Woman, created a work of art that will annoy you, haunt you, disgust you, fascinate you and, most importantly, keep you turning pages long after they've run out. This novel is not as much an homage to Nabokov as it is a gift to his work, a reminder that his greatness lives on. You will sneer at the first chapter and tremble with excitement at the last, wondering how such a piece of fiction is not yet featured in the Times. This is not the work of an amateur, but an emerging star. Never has this hipster been so satisfied to discover something that he will one day claim to have liked before it was cool. Buy this book, or so help me God.
This is one of the darkest, most messed-up things I've had the pleasure to read, at one point there was a plot twist that left me with my mouth open, I was nowhere near expecting what happened to actually happen, it's not often that a writer can get one over on me but it has happened a couple of times here.
The writing style flows well, you're lead from one scene to the next seamlessly. The characters develop well and are complex, a large amount of the story is psychology and that really helps you understand the characters.
I now can't believe I've got to wait for M. F. Sullivan to write another book.
