Author John Brandon. If you don’t know him, you should.
A raving review in the New York Times Sunday Book Review captures the heart of thousands of unexpected readers. Read here.
In Citrus County, John Brandon “calmly remind[s] us that the world is far more startling than most fiction is.”
Citrus County was published by McSweeney’s Books, a small independent publisher in San Francisco. When the above review appeared in the New York Times, the publisher had to put out another printing of the novel as sales skyrocketed! (The power of a well-written, widely-read book review!)
I read Citrus County last year and after taking two writing classes taught by John Brandon. His prose goes beyond well-written. It is precise, interesting and always strikes true. I am currently reading Brandon’s debut novel, Arkansas, and will bring you an original book review soon. Stay tuned!
