    Donald O'Donovan I owe you an apology On March 2nd 2011, you sent me a copy of your novel Tarantula Woman. It was an interesting title and the story sounded bery interesting, but at the time, the description of it just didn't jive to start reading it. I never sat down and got involved with it. Other books took precedence and eventually it was shuffled to the bottom of a tall tall 'To Be Read' pile.4 years and change later I ran across it in my Kindle library. I don't know what caused me to start [...]

    This is a story about an American man living in Juarez, Mexico. He has a job translating and writing letters in English for his clients in Juarez, who are mainly whores. Aside from them being his clients, he is also frequently theirs.It seems the author does have a personal experience with Juarez, or at least Mexico. He details the city and the characters well. However, other than that, he does not really seem to have a very intriguing story line. The book goes on and on about the main character [...]

    'Tarantula Woman' is a book which reeks of sex. And it's not sanitised, airbrushed sex, either - it's animalistic, sometimes violent sex, described by a narrator who lives in a world of whorehouses, drunkenness and hopeless dreams. But what a narrator Jerzy Mulvaney is: you can open this book at virtually any page and find a series of effortlessly convincing phrases, transporting you to 'the Real Mexico', with 'the pulse of the music, the drinks poured down the gullete heat-damp-touch-throb exci [...]

    Each of Mr. O'Donovan's books is so different from the other, but each has in common some exceptional writing. You slide down his long, flowing sentences into a world of relentless mayhem, in this case the joyful life of being dead broke and semi-homeless in Juarez, real Mexico. These books are always great huge slices of life; there's no plot in the classic sense, but the dizzying momentum of the storytelling keeps you moving through he story as well as any plot could. I almost want to say that [...]

    This is a dark meandering biographical tale told from perspective of a jack of all trades and a master of none. Its a drifters tale of love and loss, and desire and pain, and ends being a chapter in the life of an author.
