Rover reviews Combat Camera

September 27, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Montreal’s Rover arts magazine has posted a review of Combat Camera, which accuses it (among other things) of being “unabashedly Canadian.” Not that I’m complaining. I suppose it is; there’s that Mordecai Richler thing about being an honest witness to your time and place, which in my case happens to be Canada, right about now. And I guess I’m not really bashful about that. Anyway….

Though constantly sought by avid readers, it seldom happens: complete immersion into a novel, getting lost in the pages. It’s the benchmark for good writing. And after a long dry spell of books which, though good, didn’t seduce me into complete suspension of disbelief, I picked up Combat Camera by A.J. Somerset. His beautifully written novel, full of dark humour and utterly compelling characters, took me to that place most readers long for.

Go here to read the rest.
