“Great debut. [The] author offers stunning sentences, captivating turns of phrase, and energetic lines – all in his first novel. …When All the Lights Are Stripped Away was easy to like and hard to fault. It is written with remarkable grace and the sure-footed ease of an accomplished writer. …Overall, [it] is a compelling read, encased in a nice cover. …I look forward to [the author’s] next outing with much anticipation.”
