Foreword’s 2013 Book of the Year Award Finalist: Halfway to the Stars by Daniel Curzon
Halfway to the Stars – Cable Car Tales of a Grumpy Gripman (English Edition),
by Daniel Curzon.
Foreword’s 2013 Book of the Year Award Finalist (https://botya.forewordreviews.com/books/halfway-to-the-stars/) “Halfway to the Stars will thrill an audience seeking entertainment untouched by editorial censors. This is stand-up comedy at its literary best, with controversial pieces included to strike the strongest blow where needed. Race, gender, religion, culture, and sexual orientation are all targets in Curzon’s cable car chaos. In this brilliant work, the “equal opportunity offender” theory applies. Only adults should board Curzon’s cable car.” – Julia Ann Charpentier (Clarion/Foreword Reviews). Daniel Curzon has never been afraid of controversy and has been on the cutting edge of several major social and political issues. He is the author of many books of fiction and plays, including the landmark gay protest novel “Something You Do in the Dark” (G.P. Putnam, 1971). (“I greatly admire Daniel Curzon for writing this novel.” – Christopher Isherwood) (“Powerful and engrossing!” – Walter Allen, author of The English Novel) (“Engrossing, powerful, and disturbing.” – Joyce Carol Oates). With his new book he dramatizes how political correctness stops problems from being dealt with honestly instead of facilitated with the platitudes of a “liberal bubble.”
