Reviews for “Fallen Trees”
“Woven through with wonderful prose and description, it is a thriller of the heart with an ending that made me catch my breath!”
—Caytlyn Brooke, award-winning author of WIRED and DARK FLOWERS
“There's plenty of great authors who deal with the need or exigency (Raymond Carver) to cut, shorten, sharpen. Some rewrite their works infinitely, bringing them to their very bones (Graciliano Ramos, the Brazilian master). Some go straight to the point (Cormac McCarthy). Mr. Finger deserves a place among them.”
—Len Berg, Brazilian journalist
