Book Review: The Cusp of Dreams by: Diana E. Sheets

Pages: 301 pages

Received: Publicist for Review

Publish Date: March 4, 2010

Book Blurb: The Cusp of Dreams is the dark saga of our time: men and women desperate to close penny-ante deals in order to pay next month’s rent. To survive they will do almost anything. Yet despite their treachery toward others, they themselves are at risk of losing it all—their jobs, their relationships, and their families. For these men and women living on the cusp, there is no reprieve. The novel was inspired by Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman and David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross.

Book Review: This was by far one of the oddest books I have ever read, not that that is a bad thing, just an observation. This novel is a collection of connected vignettes, just the word vignette makes me want to read something, it sounds cool. The whole book just messes with your head and is very intense. The emotions the author can drum out of a story and in a reader are truly amazing, I will say that. Ms. Sheets has a way with words and wit I have seen in few authors. I really enjoyed the new surprises each story held.
