"A dizzy ride into the precarious place where two human hearts try to cohere." Some quite kind words for Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine.
We are, and have always been unabashed fans of novelist, poet and short story writer Corey Mesler. And it means a lot to us when he has kind things to say about our work. He recently had some praise for Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine which he posted on Goodreads and we are way thrilled and appreciative all at once. Many thanks man, and drinks on us for sure when next we meet.
"Ben Tanzer gets it. He gets the current zeitgeist: pop culture, the hookups, the office chatter, friendships, the musical soundtrack of our lives, and relationships. He really gets relationships in spades, the stop-start, the awkward patches, the doubts, the sex, the conversations. Ben Tanzer gets the conversations dead on. His dialog is crisp, droll, rhythmic, stoned, dour, realistic. His dialog-driven novel is a dizzy ride into the precarious place where two human hearts try to cohere. Relationships are tough, except when they’re not. Ben Tanzer understands this and he gets it. In Most Likely You Go Your Way and I Go Mine, he gets it all right."
