Taylor electrifies critics

NZ writer Chad Taylor impresses international critics with his new noir novel, Electric. Pulp: “Dark, intense, fast-paced, and perceptive, both noir literary thriller and pulp crime fiction […] Cool, surreal and sexy – make it the first book you read in 2003.” GQ: “Hums with energy […] an inventive and intelligent thriller.” Observer: “The plot seems to unfold in another world where reality is shifting and elusive. Taylor’s impressively laconic prose style is enough to maintain the tension of the narrative right up to the end.”
