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.


The Locals: A Novel

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.


Dark Light: Dawn

DARK LIGHT: DAWN jumps between past and present, all the while highlighting important moments and giving historical context to all that is happening. Things move at a lightning pace, which will keep you huffing and puffing to keep up with the fluid narrative.
