Peter John Mclean Reviews NVSQVAM

... declaring it a great book.

Full disclosure: Peter and I work the same street corner under the same pimp.


We have met a couple of times, but fuck it, it's cronyism all the way down these days. And he was able to see past the shitty, hasty formatting of NVSQVAM's Kindle edition (one of the many tasks I need to get to now that I'm free of this train wreck is straightening that mess out).

Admittedly, as Peter remarks, the title NVSQVAM is not necessarily doing me any favors. I figured it would stand out; trouble is, in all the flotsam and jetsam, to stand out a title has to be FOUND first.

In any case, this made me smile:

 Lester is by no means a likable character, as if that were a fair metric by which to judge a protagonist. He is a depressing, depressive, and selfish person, but all people are selfish and Lester generally just appears to be more honest, at least internally, about how selfish he is.

Read the whole shebang here.

  1. I just finished reading the book and wanted to congratulate you on a really excellent piece of work. As a 41-year-old man, I related to Lester more than I care to admit! True, the Kindle formatting is pretty bad, but the words were there and they were good. (Also, thank you for the, uh, warning about Trigger Warning. Recently, I'd considered submitting some writing there. Now I know better.)


Anyone can post, but please, if you want to be anonymous, come up with an amusing handle so we can tell you apart. Thanks!
