Much like Richard de Nooy in his sterling novel The Unsaid, Winkler is interested in the contorted spaces between crime and punishment, brutality and sensitivity, rage and redemption, fear, loathing and understanding, memory and narrative. Much like De Nooy with his affectively powerful novel, Winkler is stylistically adept: his weapon of choice in Wasted is the elegantly curated, seemingly simple sentence, stripped of all excess, all waste, and each a rapier blow to the senses. Winkler’s lean, lithe sentences ripple with allusive intensity and gritty detail. You can almost smell the cordite on the pages; individual passages are shot through with irradiating intensity
