Editorial Reviews

Review

"Thank you so much John! It's really very kind of you. We teachers are all very excited about it here. You know, it's rather hard to find contemporary short-story writers who really write good stuff. Students are eager to learn the language as it is spoken now, yet what they get to read is Somerset Maugham or John Cheever (who are great writers of course, and highly discussable, but you can't get an idea of how people speak NOW from them).
Once again I'd like to say that your stories seem genius to me. Wish they were made into a film. It's not only about the plot and the style, not even about the idea. It's like the characters stand up off the page and play it all in front of your eyes. I've been living with them for a while - while translating - and they don't quite let me go even after the translation is over. You've written something alive and breathing, and if it's not genius I don't know what is, then."
---Katerina Komissarova, English Language Teacher in Russia
(The author has gladly given his permission for these stories to be translated into Russian, by Mrs Komissarova, an English-language teacher in Russia, to be freely used as a teaching aid for her students.)

About the Author

An author who has had many stories published in the women's weekly magazines and literary journals, John was drawn to writing at an early age. At one time in his teenage years he was reading one book a day---the subject didn't matter, but it needed to grab his interest in the first couple of pages, or he would abandon it. And this is the rule he has since applied to all his writing, believing that if you haven't grabbed the reader straight away, you are not writing well enough.. After graduating with an Honors Degree in History he spent many years in academic publishing, at last leaving to pursue his long-held dream of becoming a writer. "Easily among the very best new writers we have seen", "fresh and original", "creates life-like characters---maybe too life-like" (whatever that means!), are some of the comments made by literary reviewers and consultants about his work. His favorite band is The Moody Blues.
