What I learned reading debut novels

Not that any particular voice is going to have universal appeal. I’m a big fan of Richard Stark’s novels, although I can understand why many people wouldn’t be, and A Clockwork Orange is an amazing exercise in voice, probably one of the most outre examples. Then again, I stopped reading Kushiel’s Dart at the word “fustian” because I wanted to read a certain voice and that so wasn’t it.

Voice. It matters.
