For Jeremy Love’s Bayou, I found a few different interesting and worthwhile links.
An interview with Love conducted by Publisher’s Weekly really caught my attention. In it, Love talks about the benefits of writing specifically online — he says it’s easier to work with surprising the reader. Not only that, Love likes the fact that he can interact with his readers online as well.
More so than any other, I think this review captures more critical places where the novel shines. The reviewer points out Love’s great “ear for dialogue” and “sense of historical perspective.” Sure, I appreciated both while reading the novel, but I hadn’t really seen it pointed out in any review I read on Amazon or elsewhere.
