I'm pleased to report that Fake Fruit Factory, a novel by Patrick Wensink, just published by Curbside Splendor, received a glowing review from NPR Books today. They called calling its "kinetic narrative" both "tightly plotted and beautifully contained" and compared it to "Twin Peaks meets Scooby-Doo." I can't think of a better compliment!
I edited Fake Fruit Factory earlier this year, working with Pat to wrangle his weird, wonderful cast of characters. Pat has a bizarre, darkly comic vision which perfectly fit my perverse sensibilities. I'm so happy for Pat and this much-deserved positive press!
