Wading into The Night Birds

Now that I’ve finished Alice Sebold’s, The Almost Moon, I’ve moved on to my signed copy of Thomas Maltman’s The Night Birds. With the books heavy reliance on American and even Minnesota history, I approached with great interest and caution. While there are those who can tell great stories from history that same individual may not have gift for well crafted fiction or beautiful prose. Though I have only rounded the corner of chapter 3 it is clear that Maltman’s debut novel promises to deliver on all fronts,  and in spades.
