The Locals: A Novel

“The Locals” is a quietly engrossing narrative that dishes out its food for thought in sly, quotable lines.

From the murky perspective of here and now – summer 2017 – it seems clear that the so-called greatest nation needs to keep a close eye on itself in the mirror while considering its legacies, values and truths. Dee does precisely that. He deserves to be read.

The Locals is first intriguing, then exasperating, and finally rather admirable in its open-ended narrative.

Bookreporter : The Locals (August 12, 2017)

An acute examination of life in a small New England town in roughly the decade after 9/11, it’s social realism or fictional sociology of the highest order.
