The new issue of Contrary Magazine is online with my review of Kim Wright‘s first novel, Love in Mid Air. Here’s the first paragraph of the review:
As a plane heads down a runway, a stranger reaches for the Narrator’s hand. “Here comes the dangerous part,” he says. Not terribly subtle, but such layering makes a story feel alive. Love in Mid Air, the debut novel by Kim Wright, is rich in “shadow truth” as Charles Baxter refers to subtext. “What is displayed evokes what is not displayed.”
Great review, Cynthia. Love the quotes you chose to use. And I agree there is no need to wonder what would happen if women (or men for that matter) did and said whatever they wanted in a marriage. It is fun to imagine though. Enjoyed!
Good work, Cindy! I agree – the quotes you used were perfect.
Darrelyn and Sariah, thanks for reading!
Not only was this review dandy, but you got me wanting to read the book. It sounds like something I would read, and bonus points for being a debut.
Tricia, I do think you would like Love in Mid Air. It is very funny–just like you : ) And yes, bonus points for it being a debut.
Loved the review! And, your ending packed a punch. I enjoyed the read and will put the book on my reading list.
Thanks, Cristina! Hope you enjoy the book.
