Comments The City, Awake

  • David Agranoff

    This review comes with it's fair share of bias. I have to explain how that works for me. When I like a person or artist I root for them to do well like anyone else. When that artist is a friend I have known for years it doesn't mean I will like everything they do. Duncan Barlow is someone I got to know through the hardcore scene. Some of his bands Guilt, By the Grace of God and especially Endpoint were huge parts of my teenage and young adult life. That is not to say he hasn't played on records [...]

    I don’t write a lot of comments/reviews on but, well, this novel deserves one. DO NOT READ THE CITY, AWAKE if you're looking for an easy read. It requires selective perception and vision. One can't expect it to be just an entertaining pastime or simply a dark mystery. Let's start with the fact that it's definitely not a mass-market thing and probably "a long sale" but if you found it – CONGRATULATUIONS! It means you're gonna get a great reading experience depending on how good of a reader y [...]

  • Matthew Moffitt

    Duncan B Barlow's THE CITY, AWAKE is a labyrinth of noir and mystery, constructed by walls of philosophy. The story starts with man awaking in a hotel room without name or memory. This man calls himself Saul. I hesitate to call the man Saul our protagonist but out of the four different perspectives told in this strange tale, Saul's the one were rooting for. Saul's journey to discover who he is and how he ended up in this all-too eerie hotel room, leads him down a rabbit hole of biblical proporti [...]

    I heard Duncan reading from his book in FL, and I've got to say this book definitely deserves more attention than it has gotten. I find myself coming back to it again and again, diving deeper into dark, yet romantic fictional (or real?) world the author built and did so very meticulously. I bet you I can open this book anywhere and find an inventive, free metaphor that will make me think of it for the rest of the day. You have to investigate every wordbit in order to really get it, know what I m [...]

    Barlow's approach to individual identity is noteworthy, though I'm a little disappointed this didnt pack the punch the darkness and obliqueness promised.
