"The Consecration of Jacob Jordaens"
New novel by Michael Brown
reviewed by Nancy Snipper
Michal Brown's attention to detail is astounding. His talent for creating a coterie of highly distinct characters with aberrant tendencies is truly remarkable. The dialogue plays out naturally; we feel we know these people and in many ways, we identify with their personal frustrations and confusions. Strange and fascinating, his heroes and anti-heroes carve out their bizarre destiny in shocking yet riveting ways; and we find ourselves asking this critical question: How much are they really in charge of their actions? Framed within a context of the occult and the unpredictable, "The Consecration of Jacob Jordaens" is a unique page-turner that will most appeal to readers intrigued by motive, wicked family woes and self-serving pleasures fueled by the mysterious and the unexplained.
