I’ll keep this review short (because, honestly, who reads lengthy reviews?). Gordon’s confidence of language, clever (but not too clever) wordplay, and perfectly measured plots make him an author to keep an eye on. Word on the street is that Submission Windows may be his last full-length volume. Please find him online and beg him to change his mind.
Although I've yet to publish a novel, I have many publications to my credit. These include poems in major journals, screenplays and produced plays as well as many non-fiction books and articles. So? So, I recognize many of the insights that I gleaned as being based on reality.
Warning: Unless you're a cynic at heart, don't digest the entire book in one sitting. These are literary pieces, and most of them were written to make a poignant point, a point that one has time to reflect upon. When I read three or four in a row, it's too much for me. When I devour them one at a time, as tasty literary tidbits I feel satisfied.
This is a perfect book to buy on the Kindle platform where you can pop up your phone, open a Kindle app and read a poem or a short story while you're on a commuter train. You can also read the book at home on your Kindle or computer.
This is a powerful booki. Buy it and digest it.
