In a recent publication, the Wisconsin Bookwatch had some kind words for David Matlin's latest novel. The full text of the review is reproduced below:
When you go through life only knowing violence, it can be hard to learn anything but. "A Halfman Dreaming" is a novel from David Matlin who paints the story of Lupe, who throughout his life, brushes with the cruelty destruction that America has become so fond of throughout the last half century. An enticing read that is sure to provoke much to think about, "A Halfman Dreaming" is an excellent and fine literary work.
