Book Review: Broken River
Broken River by J. Robert Lennon
A family move to a remote house due to the father’s strutting machismo but the local social pathologies and sense of grievance lead to mournful drama. This dullness has no dramatic heft and is full of leaden specifying. This has no depth or nuance. This was relentlessly gloomy and dull.
“His life’s work was now archived, to no great evident interest and in thrillingly perishable form, at the Broken River public library alone.”
