My review of Adam Johnson's The Orphan Master's Son.

Many thanks to editor John Griswold for letting me come play in The McNeese Review's cool new Rec Room.

Many thanks to Chris Narozny for reading (and recommending) Pacazo: “Roy Kesey’s Pacazo offers just about everything you could ever think to love in a novel: a narrator with a keen mind and a messy life; paragraphs that, structurally, move like sonnets; and a clearly delineated plot serving as a kind of mooring post for digressions that, in true Cervantean fashion, are not digressions at all but rather the real substance of the book... This is the best novel I’ve read in a long while.”

Review at Uncut.

Many thanks to Allan Jones and Uncut Magazine for an amazing review of Pacazo in their May issue: "500 pages of mesmerisingly wrought anguish, violence and derangement reminiscent of the best of Robert Stone or Denis Johnson. (…) There's an hallucinatory quality to much of Kesey's writing, feverish connections made between Segovia's present and Peru's past, ...tenses blurred and overlapping, then and now becoming one in stunning juxtaposition."
