How does life go on when your revolution fails? A cross between Heart of Darkness and I Hotel, Never Did the Fire is a brilliant exploration of the bitterness & frustration that can follow from tragedy & failure. The prose is so rich, so layered, so precise, it’s like a magnifying glass focusing the sun’s light into a spot of ignition. A challenging & rewarding read that, for all of its darkness, says as much about why we should try as it does about what happens when we fail.
