Review: THE GOLD DIGGERS by Paul Monette
Delightful and detectable; intellectual and emotive; historically grounded and contemporaneously soaring, the late Paul Monette' s "The Gold Diggers" is truly a gem. Amazingly, it was his debut novel, yet it proves to be the work of an accomplished and talented author. He has a surgical approach to his characters, flaying them down to metaphorical muscle and nerve in his ability to know them better than they know themselves, to illuminate their lights as well as their shadow.
