RARA-AVIS: Terrill's post on The Ice Harvest

I'm with Terrill here. The first 150 pages of THE ICE HARVEST were - to me - one of the most gripping experiences I've ever had. Disjointed? Huh! The man just walks into the scene and reveals what has happened bit by bit, and I'm reading this with total astonishment: how can he do this? how can a writer be so good?

In those pages Phillips makes a very good use of David Mamet's rules: enter the scene late, exit early.
