Order DOVE SEASON here
No good could come from analyzing my life. Introspection was for people with interesting lives and money.
I moved to Montreal three months shy of turning 20. I remember the distinct feeling of elation walking the street of a real city. A city that was built and destroyed and built again, covered in concrete and inhabited by people who were so different from me. That feeling is a little bit like clicking with a new author, there is excitement, a looming sense of danger and a sense of freedom you can't get used to. I clicked with Johnny Shaw's pen reading his first novel DOVE SEASON, a finalist for the 2010 Amazon Breakthrough Noel Award. Recklessly standing on one foot, trying to maintain a healthy balance between crime drama and bildungsroman, DOVE SEASON comes off as a clever, perceptive, patient and most important: unique. There isn't any writer out there who could sound like Johnny Shaw, even if they tried.
