      Epub James Lasdun #229; The Fall Guy Epub #226; The Fall Epub #229; fall free, The Fall book, The Fall Guy PDF/EPUBEver since I read It’s Beginning to Hurt a collection of stories by James Lasdun I have eagerly picked up any writing of his I could find He comes from a long line of self aware male novelists who point to themselves the human condition with its male inadequacies and laugh with us eg Julian Barnes Ian McEwan Graham Swift and further back Kingsley Amis and PG Wodehouse That Lasdun is not as broad as these last two matters not at all for what it is he perceives and is able to conveyLasdun may be one of the most underrated novelists of whom I am aware A new novel of his should be an event and widely heralded Instead I came upon this novel published last year in a library display My other reading had to wait until I had a chance to see what he was doing in this extraordinarily chilling horror novel in which the unspooling of mystery is embedded in the comfort the characters enjoyThere is a threesome a wealthy banker his beautiful wife and a talented cousin There ar

      Epub James Lasdun #229; The Fall Guy Epub #226; The Fall Epub #229; fall free, The Fall book, The Fall Guy PDF/EPUB25 This is a capable psychological thriller about an out of work chef who becomes obsessed with the idea that his wealthy cousin’s alluring wife is cheating on him during a summer spent with them in their upstate New York bolthole I liked hearing about Matthew’s cooking and Chloe’s photography and it’s interesting how Lasdun draws in a bit about banking and the Occupy movement However the complicated Anglo American family backstory between Matthew and Charlie feels belabored and the fact that we only see things from Matthew’s perspective is limiting in a bad way There’s a decent Hitchcock vibe in places but overall this is somewhat lackluster I’ve preferred Lasdun’s poetry Water Sessions and nonfiction Give Me Everything You Have to this first taste of his fiction

      Epub James Lasdun #229; The Fall Guy Epub #226; The Fall Epub #229; fall free, The Fall book, The Fall Guy PDF/EPUBWhoever is handling publicity for this new release is doing an excellent job Covered in one of the weeklies as a must read thriller for Fall 'The Fall Guy' really did not deliver in my opinion The tale of revenge and obsession involved no thrills at all I appreciate a multi layer psychological suspense but this book was rather slow and the ending left me with a 'meh' Don't get me started on the amateurish 'stalking' of Chloe her elusive yoga classes and the wealthy husband's paranoia The writing was great but the characters were developed far less than the self indulgent food descriptions which actually stuck with me a duck egg and aged gruyere omelette much? Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an ARC for an honest review
