Beatitude: “…will stay with you long after you finish the last page.”
The latest review of Beatitude comes from Empty Mirror, a wonderful arts and literary magazine devoted to literature, film, music and art, with a special interest in the Beat Generation. Empty Mirror’s owner and editor, Denise Enck, wrote the review herself:
“Closs’s knowledge of and love for the Beats and New York shines through; the atmosphere alone is enough for a Beat aficionado to appreciate this book. But it’s the personal struggles that [narrator] Harry Charity experiences which are at the heart of Beatitude and which give it its poignancy. It’s about unrequited love, relationships, and how we go about finding satisfaction and direction in life. Those are abstract concepts, but Closs’s writing and engaging characters bring them to life in ways which will stay with you long after you finish the last page.”
