Be Good Reviewed in Now Magazine and That Shakespeherian Rag!

Posted By Tightrope Books On October 9, 2008 @ 5:31 pm In Reviews | No Comments

Review of [1]Be Good [2], from Now Magazine [3]: “Though a cover blurb for Stacey May Fowles’s first novel proclaims it to be essential reading for women in their 20s, Be Good is also essential for 20-something men…I found Fowles’s characters eerily familiar…Fowles builds a constant tension between the external world and how it is filtered by want and need.”

From That Shakespeherian Rag: “(Fowles) provides a tightly calibrated, energetic look at the painful torsion and razor sadness that accrues to the experience of being a modern urban Canadian twentysomething. Those in her own demographic are likely to experience more than a pang of recognition; for the rest of us, reading her novel is the next best thing to being young again.”
