"Has some weird type of understated elegance that turns this novella into a road map of the soul." My Father's House gets The Nervous Breakdown'd. And likes it. A lot.

Not unlike TNBBC's The Next Best Book Blog, The Nervous Breakdown has been a most kind supporter indeed of our work, and continuing this pattern of awesomeness, they have some most kind things to say about My Father's House as well. Big hugs to the always sublime Nik Korpon and the whole crew at TNB for their kindness, and drinks, many certainly, when next we meet. Now, how about some excerpt? Word. 

"Though the overall tone is a much more somber one than Tanzer usually brings, there’s a gutting insightfulness to My Father’s House. The characters are flawed and fumble through life, relationships, jobs. They make poor choices and they hurt each other, sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. Even when they lie, though, whether to themselves or each other, they’re still telling a version of truth. Their truths are beautiful and painful and sometimes hard to accept, but they’re ones that keep us going, day after day, until the day we’re not."
