Psychopath. Readers like me, who enjoy finely written literary fiction, may re-read many of the finely structured sentences in Elizabeth Brundage’s novel titled, All Things Cease to Appear. Based on the characters and plot, I encourage reading this novel on sunny days. One character is a psychopath, and Brundage develops him in ways that are both clever and creepy. Death stays present in the novel throughout all four hundred pages, always lurking in the foreground or background. Again, that was both clever and creepy. The relationships in the novel are complex, to say the least, and readers who like psychological novels will find a lot to enjoy in this one.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
