The UK is raving about Patrick Flanery's Fallen Land

UK reviews are just starting to come in for Patrick Flanery's latest. The Guardian says, "In Fallen Land, Flanery has given us a gripping thriller, and a superb portrayal of how ordinary men can veer into madness, but its real power lies in its recognition of the tragic failure of an American dream," and the Sunday Times raves, "Fallen Land is an ambitious thriller vehicle for a dissection of America. . . Fallen Land impressively examines how thoroughly the American dream has turned into the American nightmare."

Terrific early praise for Patrick Flanery's Absolution

Patrick Flanery's Absolution is already garnering raves in the UK and now has received a starred review from Kirkus, who say: "Flanery has constructed a haunting labyrinth of mirrors, fact reflecting remembrance, lie reflecting evasion. Complex in theme, complex in narrative, this is a masterful literary exploration of the specter of conscience and the formidable cost of reconciliation."
