Praise for Old Devil Moon

“Fowler repeatedly challenges the reader to redraw the boundaries between innocence and malevolence, rationality and paranoia. His strength lies in the way he unveils the darker side of the ordinary; fresh and thought-provoking, elegant and playful.”


“Fowler hides a powerful narrative in a slyly experimental text to superb effect.”
