Grievances Called Intriguing Novel; Send a Message to Author Mark Ethridge

The Akron Beacon Journal in Akron, Ohio has praised Grievances as an “intriguing novel.” They continue:

Ethridge precisely conveys the grunt side of newspaper work — the crunching boredom of sifting through piles of public records as the deadline clock ticks away. He shows various versions of the story as the two reporters polish it, and their disappointment as it suffers delays caused by conflicting information.

The book’s supporting characters are beautifully drawn. The aptly named Reverend Grace, the dignified, snuff-dipping housemaid Mary Pell, even the pathetic, aging Klansmen — each is elevated above “type” by Ethridge’s careful observation.
