The Kojo Hand A NOVEL BY TOM GATTEN aIam very impressed with the vivid characterization here. From the self-conscious, guarded, headstrong Deanie, the hilariously crass but needy Barett, to the big-hearted Zerk, tortured by his past, and the quietly noble Kojo, each character is unique, consistent, and nicely layered. Deanieas struggle to discover and stand by beliefs in an adult world that is constantly asking her to compromise is especially engaging. I also admire the moral force underlying the narrative: The Kojo Hand makes it clear that longingawhether for recognition, sex, fame, a sense of belongingacan lead to destruction and isolation when people let their desires blindly motivate them. The Kojo Hand is a giving and humane novel, exploring interesting and important human problems with a gentle hand.a a Writeras Digest Mapper of Mists POEMS AND TRANSLATIONS aI think Tom Gattenas Mapper of Mists is a remarkable book of poems.
