"The writing is incredible," though, "I kept searching for some lightness." My Father's House gets Small Press Reviews'd. And likes it. A lot.

ARCs of My Father's House have started trickling out and with that there is the first review from the always sublime and incredibly thoughtful Lavinia Ludlow at Small Press Reviews. There is much positivity and that is appreciated, there is also the search for more lightness though, something we think is there, could be there, but is now a concern, and has us wondering how else the book will be experienced. We look forward to what is to come, however, and we are very thankful to Lavinia for jumping in first, drinks on us for sure, whenever, and wherever we finally meet.

"The writing is incredible, no surprise for a writer like Tanzer, and his storytelling ability has always been incomparable, but the incessant mention of grief, dying, wasting away, and the sheer hopelessness of his protagonist’s tortured soul overtook me like Mavericks’ surf."
