We were ecstatic to read this glorious 5 star review of Eugen Bacon’s Claiming T-Mo over at NB Magazine. It is so rewarding for us when a reviewer gets a book in the same way we did!
Her eloquent, elegant and lyrical prose gripped me from the very first sentence of this immensely passionate, moving and thought-provoking story, and it continued to do so until I closed the final page. My involuntary exclamation as I finished was WOW – rather lacking the author’s eloquence, but a heartfelt reflection of the power of this amazing, magical book.-Linda Hepworth, NB Magazine (5 stars)
In this lush interplanetary tale, an immortal priest flouts the conventions of a matriarchal society by choosing a name for his child. The act initiates chaos that splits the boy in two, unleashing a Jekyll-and-Hyde child upon the universe: named T-Mo by his mother and Odysseus by his father. The story unfolds through the eyes of these three distinctive women: Silhouette, Salem and Myra - mother, wife, and daughter. As they struggle to confront their fears and navigate the treacherous paths to love and accept T-Mo/Odysseus and themselves, the darkness in Odysseus urges them to unbearable choices that threaten their very existence.More info →
