The Boston Globe just ran a wonderful review of Jay Neugeboren’s 20th novel, “The American Sun & Wind Moving Picture Company” (March 2013; Texas Tech University Press). Reviewer Madison Smartt Bell writes, “Already in the first chapter, the rapid weave of illusion and reality is intoxicating.” She ends the review with the following: “In the case of any other author, this work might be taken as the capstone of a long and distinguished career, but Jay Neugeboren is tapping such a well of energy that he might not even be half-finished yet.”
