Drowning Machine on The Caretaker of Lorne Field


Naomi Johnson over at the Drowning Machine (one of my favorite review sites for discovering new books to read), gives her thoughtful analysis and review of The Caretaker of Lorne Field, summing the book up as such:

This is just the kind of book that someday will be on high-school reading lists, and this is the kind of thought-provoking book that will then be challenged by both parents and church leaders, possibly even banned in some ultra-fundamentalist communities. But every reader, and particularly fans of Stephen King, should take a peek into this odd, sad fable. What you find there will forever be a secret between just you and Jack Durkin. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I just finished your book, "Small Crimes", a few minutes ago. Fantastic story there. Have you gotten any interest from Hollywood?

thanks. hollywood's tough right now with dark crime fiction, but Outsourced should be close to production, and there's currently a lot of interest in Caretaker, so I think it's only a matter of time before someone wants to do something with it.
