Nicholas Galt has written since he could form words with a pen. His fiction is an eclectic collection of short stories and longer works with a distinct flavour to them. He has published numerous short stories in various anthologies and literary magazines. And he also wrote non-fiction articles for a magazine for a few years but was drawn back to fiction. Nicholas Galt has an unmistakeable style that reaches underhandedly into the readers mind and offers a distinctive view of the world.

And what is it about Oh Henry chocolates and Dr. Pepper?
There will be no freedom from ourselves.

I enjoyed this story and its messages. The dialogue felt natural. If I could afford it, I would buy both cars. Though as 'I am so broke I can't even pay attention,' (Hendrix) I would have to stick to the 'flying Volvo!'
I thought this stroy was very well written with a lovely pace. Kristy's skill of building meaning and landscapes is obvious. The little girls thoughts and behaviour was believable and I look forward to further works. Just check your cover image size. Hey! Actually it stood out because it was the wrong size! But that will prevent it from getting into the premium catalogue. Keep on chasing that Chinese fish, the Wri-Ting.
