In Delivering Virtue – Book One of The Epic of Didier Rain – Brian Kindall takes the classic novel of the West and turns it on its head. Grandiloquent humor, pathos, and a cast of absurd and depraved characters all come together in an American Frontier world inspired by myth and legend, creating a surreal and disarmingly poignant adventure reviewers are calling a triumph of American Magical Realism.
I really enjoyed this book I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite like this. Not even one that comes close. It’s..different. It’s well written, surreal, evocative, whimsical, and lovely.
I loved the writing style and description, as well as the characterizations of every single soul, human and non-human alike.
