Mark Zero reviews AYSD?

Though he only gave it 3 stars, author Mark Zero recently wrote an amazing and thorough review of Are You Sitting Down? over at GoodReads.  Check this out…

Whether they perpetrate or suffer the crimes and misdemeanors they relate, the characters rarely make any judgments about what they do except to justify their own crimes, and the novel’s attitude toward the town’s secrets is neutral. All secrets—marital dysfunction, homicide, closeted homosexuality—carry the same moral weight in Are You Sitting Down, and the novel treats its grotesque and realistic elements in exactly the same manner, so that the gothic aspects of the story offer neither commentary nor framework for understanding the characters’ more mundane challenges.

Wow!  You can read the full review here.
