Published August 24, 2019 is a very strong review of WHEN THE COIN IS IN THE AIR. It was written by Daniel Brown for AEQAI, an Ohio arts magazine.
Here are a few quotes:
“Cincinnati novelist John Young’s debut novel “When The Coin Is In The Air” is impressive.”
“The reader will want to disbelieve what’s about to happen, and John Young, the author, builds to this ferocious climax with such immense skill, that you realize you’re in the hands and mind of a great psychologist.”
“The novel itself is mainly about psychology, after all, which thus places Young’s novel in a great tradition; it has elements of 19th century novels while being concurrently quite contemporary; it’s a quite powerful novel and an excellent debut.”
