Hello, Transcriber

That title! Two simple words — “hello” and “transcriber” — separated by a comma, but it should be a semi-colon, or maybe even a paragraph break because what happens between those two words is a novel. Deep, moving and full of atmosphere. A winter in Wisconsin where you can feel the snow under your boots. A train bridge used for suicides that you wouldn’t dare walk near much less on! And people described with such convincing reality we know that we KNOW all of them. We were blown away by this debut novel!
