Review of “Diary As Sin” on Rain Taxi

Patrick James Dunagan has reviewed Will Alexander’s novel, Diary As Sin, for the Fall 2011 edition of Rain Taxi.  Here’s a sample:

“Not surprisingly, Will Alexander’s new novel is a decidedly poetic endeavor. This burst of seer-monologue is presented as the transcription of a recently discovered set of audiotapes on which a young blind woman named Rosanna has recorded a spiritually antagonistic autobiographical indictment of existence…”

…This recital comes across as a crossing of William Blake with Edgar Allen Poe; dark, moody, and busting out with its virtuoso display of monumental yet nascent knowledge of a multi-ordered cosmos.”
