Elisa Rolle - bless her! - is clearly powering through her 'to be read' pile, and has now turned her attention to Adam Fitzroy's BETWEEN NOW AND THEN and posted her review of it. We especially liked her last paragraph:
I would like to highlight that it’s not mandatory that every story involving two gay characters has to be a romance, I prefer that, but it’s not mandatory; in a way, this is the ending of a past romance and the beginning of a future one. The strength of Fitzroy, and this novel, lies in the characters and setting, both of them very English-style, both of them carefully crafted.
Probably quite unnecessary at this stage to say that we feel exactly the same way; in fact, 'romance is preferable but not necessary' sums up the Manifold Press ethos rather nicely, and it's very rewarding to know that some of our readers agree with us about that. Thank you again, Elisa, we're very glad you enjoyed it!
