WALKING THROUGH MIRRORS by Brian Keith Jackson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 1, 1998

"Moving in its core idea—and in its ending—but Jackson, overall, has plumped too many narrative calories into an otherwise lean, and nicely told, story. (Author tour)"

FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 1, 1997

"The down-home parable-making here is undermined by all the pop psych, making this, sadly, a perfect contender for the latest in black schmaltz. (Author tour)"
Cleanly written debut that begins modestly enough, with a simplicity worthy of a YA audience, but loses its way once Jackson's preacherly instincts take over and his characters become object lessons in righteous behavior. Read full book review >
