Don t go into The Snowman s Children expecting a fast paced thriller This is not that book Instead it is much along the lines of Lee Thomas s The German or Peter Straub s A Dark Matter books that methodically breakdown the abrupt change from boy to man from child to adult and all the terrible conseuences that come with it But that s not to say it isn t thrilling or scary It s just that Glen Hirshberg is too good a writer to use cheap tricks Instead he drops you knee deep in a Detroit past so distinct you can taste the dirty snow on your tongue allowing the menace to build and build leaving so much inferred than outright stated on the page 40 to 45 for this menacing read

The Snowman's Children A Novel Characters ↠ 2 Eets of suburban Detroit The incident a result of good but woefully misguided juvenile intentions forced his family to leave their home and eventually forced him at age twenty nine to return to his home. I love discovering authors who have the potential for becoming new favorites and whose progress I can enjoy following book by book Occasionally as with Jonathan Lethem I get to be there when they go from obscure Gun With Occasional Music to best selling and award winning The Fortress of Solitude Or to be there when a little known novel like Shoeless Joe becomes a blockbuster movie Field of Dreams and suuddenly everyone is talking about an author you ve been faithfully following and uietly recommending for yearsA few months ago I discovered Glen Hirshberg when I read one of his anthologized horror stories It wasn t the best ghost story I ve ever read but the uality of writing the poetry of the tale the subtlety of the symbolism the stark beauty of the imagery tinged with psychological symbolism and foreboding clues was a strong contrast to the gruesome slasher stories that it was sandwiched betweenSo I tracked Hirshberg down found two obscure slim collections of horror tales The Two Sams and American Morons and concluded that I had found another Gene Wolfe a writer with the ability to craft a subtle poetic tale with haunting imagery and atmospheric details that confidently lure the reader in Most surprising was how varied the set pieces were a shipwreck in Hawaii a New England village the autobahn in Germany a southern gothic I borrowed these books from the library but I know I will want to return to them so I am certain I will be purchasing copies for my own libraryHaving exhausted both anthologies and still awaiting a third which won t be published until January I next borrowed Hirshberg s only novel to date the 2002 tale based upon an unsolved serial murder case concerning missing children in Detroit in the 1970 s It is so brilliantly rendered so hauntingly told from the sad point of view of a misunderstood and troubled young boy I cannot fathom how this novel lingered in relative obscurity while all kinds of overrated dreck claimed the best seller lists This book too I must own and I plan to reread a Kindle version so I can annotate and highlight favorite passages and bask in the language that held me spellbound and haunts me long after finishing the book and regrettably returning it to the library

The Snowman's Children A Novel Characters ↠ 2 Town in search of three old friends Reminiscent of both To Kill a Mockingbird in its touching portrait of childhood and the beautifully written brand of suspense that calls to mind Smilla's Sense of Sno. I read this book about 8 months ago and earlier today I was staring off at nothing thinking about it This book has done this to me periodically ever since I finished the last page Today I thought I should write about itDisclaimer I was a fan of Glen Hirshberg s before ever picking up this book I was only familiar with his short and medium length fiction at the time and was firmly enthralled by everything I had read so far All that to say my expectations could not have been set any higher for this novel I was on board with the premise and very excited to see where he would take it Children living through a serial killer haunting their world the adults they became Sign me upI loved this book even though I don t think that anyone should Love this story It is an uncomfortable one and very hard to swallow Not that it is implausible but that it is at times so challenging to sit idly by as a reader when you see the very human mistakes coming a mile away This novel in all its rich characterization is supposed to make you shake your head in disbelief A lot has been said about how effective it is that the serial killer is not the focus of the novel but an ever present threat that drives it I would go one further and say that the threats that are blatantly presented are so haunting that they almost make you forget The Snowman has any power over this story And the fact that we get to see two eras of cause and effect the ideas are fully explored without losing their subtlety Let me put it this way I look forward to the day where I can say Glen Hirshberg and have everyone around me know exactly who I m talking about Mark my words it will happen Until that happens I ll keep recommending him to anyone who ll listen
