Bret Lott author of "Jewel" "Mirror Lake" is a taut psychological
drama that carried me through from first page to last. Mr. Greene's
is a bright new voice in American literature, a voice that can
render exquisitely the sharpest truths of the human heart and the
finest details of a passing landscape all at once. May many more
books follow "Mirror Lake!"
James Lee Burke Thomas Greene's first novel, "Mirror Lake, " is a beautiful piece of writing. The descriptions of New England are haunting, the characters complex -- in some way reflections of all of us. His prose is clean, poetic, and infused with the themes of family, death, loyalty, and romantic love. He writes with Emerson's love of the countryside and James M. Cain's ability to see tragedy at work in the lives of ordinary people. I think we're going to hear a lot more about this very fine novelist.
John Hough, Jr. author of "The Last Summer" "Mirror Lake" is a strong and gentle book about friendship, loneliness, and the transcendent stubbornness of the human heart. A sweet, sad story, full of surprises and resonant of the green mountains and clear waters of Vermont.
Nelson DeMille "Mirror Lake" is an eloquently written tale of two love stories brought together by an unlikely friendship. A stunning accomplishment, "Mirror Lake" reaffirms the true power of love and its resounding ability to transform the human heart. These characters will stay with you a long time. Thomas Greene is a major new voice in American fiction.
Susan Cheever This book gets Vermont just right, with its punishing winters and ravishing summers. Greene's characters, trapped in this powerful landscape, live out a story of love, betrayal, and violence that kept me turning the pages to the end.
