Mini-review: "Me and Kev," by Simon Black

Me and Kev, by Simon Black
Me and Kev (book; 1993)
By Simon Black

One of those "genre unto itself" novels I like so much, the creepy and cutting-edge "Me and Kev" will have you on the edge of your seat, if you like these kinds of dark magical-realism tales, or rolling your eyes and scoffing if you don't. The tale of a very disturbed little boy, and the murderous imaginary friend who may or may not live inside him, the typesetting takes advantage of two-toned typewriter ribbons to great and scary effect. Definitely worth checking out.

Out of 10: 9.0
