Editorial Reviews

Review

Phil Harvey has crafted a psychological thriller that takes reality shows, and in fact much of our popular culture, into a realm of true horror. His skill in delving into the psychology of the characters keeps the reader turning the pages. And Harvey does it not through any heavy-handed interior monologues but through the dialogue and interaction of the individuals. The book would easily lend itself not only to a successful movie script but to an intense stage play. The reader comes to know these individuals, to sympathize with them despite eventually even because of their flaws, and to root for them in their fight against not only nature but also the unnatural culture that has put them in their situation. Show Time is a thinking reader s thriller and a thoroughly entertaining read. --Darrell Delamaide, author of The Grand Mirage, for the Washington Independent Review of Books

Phil Harvey elegantly dissects the plummeting values of 21st-century America, while his plot twists seize the reader by the lapels. A great read! --David Stewart, best-selling author of American Emperor: Aaron Burr s Challenge to Jefferson s America

How far can reality TV go to satisfy the lust for sensation? Show Time delves into our primal instincts. It s an exciting novel, hard to put down, and highly recommended. --The Midwest Book Review

A vision of the future that is laugh-out-loud, until we realize how much it looks like the world we live in now. --Frank S. Joseph, award-winning author of To Love Mercy

Show Time is a biting commentary on society. Mr. Harvey writes with pure genius. You'll be riveted until the final page, and will be left thinking about this tale for a long, long time. Warning: Some may feel as if they cannot continue due to the gritty emotional content. Finish it anyway you won't regret it. I'm going to buy everything I can find by this amazing writer. --Debracadabra, LibraryThing

About the Author

PHIL HARVEY s fiction has appeared in fifteen literary magazines, including Phantasmagoria, which nominated one of his stories for a Pushcart Prize, and Antietam Review, which named another the winner of its annual contest. Most recently his work has appeared in The MacGuffin, Natural Bridge, and the Dos Passos Review.

Harvey nonfiction includes: Let Every Child Be Wanted, which drew praise from former President Jimmy Carter; Government Creep, which, as one reviewer noted, proves that government has invaded virtually every nook and cranny of our lives ; and The Government vs. Erotica, which Publishers Weekly and Booklist praised, the ALA Intellectual Freedom Roundtable nominated as the year s best book on intellectual freedom, and Media Coalition called a frightening, enlightening story.

By day, Phil Harvey is president of DKT International, a nonprofit family planning and AIDS prevention organization, and president and majority shareholder of Adam & Eve, a mail-order business that sells sexually oriented books and films. He lives with his wife, Harriet Lesser, in Cabin John, Maryland.
