I'm reading 'Buzz' for the second time this summer. The first time I read it in a single day. Here Zverina offers us an imaginative coming of age story about a young man struggling with his more cynical nature. It is set against the backdrop of the Apollo 11 lunar landing and the dreamy yet desolate imagery Zverina invokes is masterful. The characters are surprisingly accessible. Due to Zverina's remarkably witty and intelligent style you will appreciate and connect with their emotional complexities without feeling burdened. I love this book and you will too. For a great read from a new and emerging author look no further. Check out what this 'Buzz' is all about!
In 'Straight', Zverina strikes a wonderful balance between darkness and light, between reason and insanity and in a few short paragraphs opens up for us a glimpse into the delicate relationship between man and nature. A stroke of genius!
