We all have secrets...

The bandaged man’s chest rose and fell as the parentless brother and sister watched and waited.

About Nicholas John Greenfield

Nicholas was born in England and moved to Sydney, Australia, when he was seventeen. Upon realising that his poetry and music career were never going to take off, he turned to the written word, believing that age has nothing to do with success in the literary world and as such he possesses ample time to seek his fortune. The Bandaged Man, his first published work, is to be followed by Love, Lies and Los Zetas, a travel thriller influenced by his time in Mexico and years of life on the road, and The Parisian Mirror, a mysterious story of a young man in Paris who finds an 70-year-old picture of himself at a Parisian flea market.

Review by: LadyBuggle on Sep. 24, 2014 :
I received this book as a present and I really enjoyed reading it. Nice style of writing. I finished it in under 3 days. I especially liked the ending of the story. As far as I can see there is not much published by this author, but I hope there is more coming soon. So all up it deserves 5 stars!

Mermerzing stuff.

I first heard of this author from Wattpad where he had a short story that contained the same dream like prose. It was so refreshing to read someone who didn't just write formulaic or worry about copying some other writer.

Nicholas has a style that is completely his own and, though at times the story lacks pace and action, it more than makes up for it in vision and literary merit.

Get this book, get a cup of tea, settle down on a windy stormy night and just let the prose sweep you away.

Final note, most likely for lovers of literature like Green, Hemingway or Faulkner.

Always willing to support an unknown writer of such talent. Deserved 5 stars in my book right from the start. Like someone said below, there are times when it might be a bit slow, but you have to think more about the way it's written I think, rather than what it is saying.

Looking forward to hopefully seeing more soon.
