CREPUSCULE WITH NELLIE Reviewed by Michelle Newby

From the March 2015 Edition of The Collagist:

“When other helpers fail and comforts flee, help of the helpless, oh, abide with me. Point me to the skies, earth’s vain shadows flee. I’ll triumph still, if only you’ll abide with me.”

I know I need to try to stay away from music metaphors to describeCrepuscule W/ Nellie by Joe Milazzo but I’m going to begin by saying that this novel is a sumptuous symphonic language feast. Yep—truly. You will be dizzyingly drunk, happily drowning in the stuff. Multiple first-person narratives will subsume you in the characters and the effect will make you feel as if you are there, as if you are them.
