MISERABLE ADVENTURE STORIES is a variegated collection of pop fiction by one of the best practitioners of the pop story, Alex Bernstein. Three of the stories aren’t miserable, they’re masterful…
Okay, you’re not supposed to draw attention to reviews – because then it’s like cherry picking if you don’t show the bad ones. But this one is so nice. (Listen, when Simon & Schuster start publishing my books, we can start a new conversation about it.)
The good folks over at New Pop Lit call the stories in MAS “Masterful examples of the pop genre” and “all entertaining”. You can read the full review here. Book reviews are a new sleeve over at NPL, and their other reviews are tremendously insightful about all the books they’re reading, new and old. And as always, check out the rest of their site for some of today’s best up and coming authors.
Of course, you can easily discover what’s so masterful and entertaining about Miserable Adventure Stories by picking up your own copy here. You can also find it at many of your better bookstores. Ask for it by name!
