Success does not usually equate with death— unless you happen to be novelist Charlie Forte. When Charlie receives the largest book advance of his career, he comes to two conclusions: He is a shit, and he is going to kill himself. But, a stone garden wall and twenty-four women cause him to experience what he likes to call “planus interruptus.”

The BookViral Review:

Fiction is undoubtedly one of the best forms of artistic expression. It’s given us epic love stories, nail-biting thrillers and incredible fantasies. Occasionally it introduces us to brilliant literary voices like Vincent Panettiere and his novel The Music Of Women

A heady rollercoaster of a read with Panettiere cleverly orchestrating whiplash changes of mood and unexpected direction. His narrative is taut and superbly observed. Unashamedly egocentric, politically indelicate, and misogynistic. And perhaps one of the best novels you will ever read!

Panettiere is a disciplined observer who filters out superfluous detail and through his protagonist Charlie Forte he writes from the point of view of a man who doesn’t quite fit into the world in which he finds himself. A character with a disquieting edge that rarely feels deliberate he’s undeniably parodic with Panettiere’s narrative tracking through key moments of his life as he seemingly teeters on the edge of oblivion.

Take it for granted that Panettiere’s writing, plotting and dialogue are superb. He’s an author who brings boundless energy and creativity to the written word. You can imagine a wry smile on his face as he delivers lines such as “Security comes from within; it is knit together in the core of one’s soul.” And by the end of the book, it’s hard not to feel close to Charlie. Feeling that we have been given an inside view, even if we also have an outside perspective.

Original, witty and shrewdly contemplative, The Music Of Women is one of those books you will want to talk about. Simply superb it is recommended without reservation!
