  4. While Fowler never hesitates to take us to the edge of psycho sexual madness, The Handlicker surprises us by morphing into a beautiful love story, and Speak To Me With Tenderness Howard Sun captures the madness of our obsession with social media and the danger of stalking masterfully There is a darkness here that is closer to a 21st century P.K Dick than to the magical realism of 20th Century Latin America She is closer to Cortazar and Murakami than to the Latin roots of the genre, with a health [...]
