Liam Kruger Reviews The Space Between the Space Between by John Hunt

The Space Between the Space BetweenVerdict: carrot

On the one hand this emphasis of presence counts for the novel’s not unremarkable sense of immediacy; I read the thing in two sittings, and not unhappily. On the other hand, this emphasis can make the novel feel ahistorical, and irresponsible, difficult to be around; towards the end of the novel, Jethro observes that Sam has been visiting him less and less, returning his focus to his own life, a little relieved. By the last few pages, some readers may find themselves feeling the same.
