THE WINTER GIRL by Matt Marinovich
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 19, 2016

"The novel's second half devolves into a noisy, almost parodic noir, with too much coincidence, too many nested secrets, and too many people acting according to motives that seem cooked up in a laboratory where someone's trying to purify blackheartedness. But it all moves briskly, and the beginning is compelling enough to keep the reader turning pages."
The sophomore effort from Marinovich (Strange Skies, 2007) is a dark and ever darkening psychological thriller set in a bleak Hamptons winter.Read full book review >
STRANGE SKIES by Matt Marinovich
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 1, 2007

"Perhaps too glib and superficial to manage the Nick Hornbyish combination of comedy and poignancy it aims for, but Paul is good fun: self-pitying, self-mocking, lively, sometimes hilarious. Not a profound book, but a fast-paced, entertaining one."
First novel in which a 30-something bad lad feigns cancer to stave off fatherhood, but the masquerade sours when it turns out he really is terminally ill. Comic misadventures ensue—oh, and life lessons, too. Read full book review >
