Adam Maxwell’s Fiction Lounge by Adam Maxwell

Adam’s subject matter tends towards the surreal or at least the very least weird. His writing has been described in the press as a ‘Chandler-esque hard-boiled cocktail, stirred with equal parts humour, mystery, gut-wrenching realism, and trademark minimalism’, ‘weird, wonderful, twisted and witty’ and even ‘almost Fawlty Towers’ which is, unsurprisingly, one of his favourites. His first book, a collection . . .

The first part of this novel is like reading about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s autobiographical stories of a pioneer girl’s life; it’s the same farming and family life, but among the exotic flora of New Zealand.

FALSE MEMOIR

Quirky (un)true story

By G.S. Williams, author of No Man An Island

Sep 29, 2011: I strangely kind of love "False Memoir" right now.

There needs to be some editing done. On occasion, the tense shifts from first person past to first person present, and there’s the occasional dropped word or typo. These things are easy to fix.

But the narrative voice of the main character, Katherine, is funny and well-paced, even as she’s trying to gather information about Jack O’Lies, a reporter whose wife was murdered [more . . .]
