    Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite

    Hal Marcovitz’s funny yet thought-provoking My Life With Wings is about a newspaper copy editor, Eggerton, who wakes up one day and discovers that he has wings. What is he going to do with them? Eggerton does not seem to easily relish this unexpected development. Instead, he deeply ponders on what his action should be and how will he cope with this new chapter of his life.

    The wonder in My Life With Wings comes courtesy of Marcovitz’s protagonist. His demeanor and thinking, that sometimes can appear as psychedelic, are diverse and believable. Throughout the story, Eggerton  broods deeply over isolation, desire, and everything that revolves around his wings. As a divorced man, the protagonist’s life is actually normal and readers would definitely know one or two people like him – except for the wings, of course. His friends are a bunch of colorful people, each with their own degree of eccentricity and flaws.

    Hal Marcovitz's writing style is also oddly vibrant. Additionally, the images included in the book, which can appear outlandish to some, add more depth to the peculiarity of the story as a whole. This novel is a fine allegory about life, aspiration, and how one perseveres against challenges. Absorbing the fun creative spirit of Marcovitz through this novella will keep readers fascinated from the beginning to the end. Simply put, this is a unique tale and a creditable triumph for the author who has created a book worthy of sitting on a shelf next to the works of other great writers.
