Deep and Crisp, by Richard Barnett (Winepress Publishing)
Deep and Crisp is an interesting approach to its subject matter,
Christmas, for a couple of reasons.
First, as is typical of Barnettís other works, we see an author
taking strict charge of his point of view. Once we see through
human eyes, another time through an animalís, but we always see
humans and understand them the more. The stories let us see more
of the Christmas story, each time from a different point of
Second, Deep and Crisp was printed at the cusp of the Print on
Demand movement, and we can see historically how the publisher
then was extremely careful to distance himself from the content
of the book for legal reasons, even though the book contained no
evident controversy. It is as though the publisher cannot feel
comfortable with giving an author his own voice.
This book is worth seeking out and its message is even better.
