REVIEW: A SUDDEN LIGHT by Garth Stein I had never before read any of Garth Stein 's novels, though I own a Kindle copy of THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN. From the first pages of A SUDDEN LIGHT I was enraptured, fascinated, and engrossed. This is a very special novel, an exceptional one. With a plethora of delicately peeled character studies, a multiply hot-button plot, and the ease with which history intertwines with contemporary, and Supernatural with consensus reality--not to mention truly Faulknerian overtones--A SUDDEN LIGHT is a colossus of a novel: not in length but in status--definitely one of the BEST books of 2014.
I was fortunate to review a digital ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss and NetGalley.
