The Codorus Press gang just got word today of a great review of Wayne Lockwood’s Acid Indigestion Eyes: Musings and Essays on Generation X, courtesy of the fine folks at The Compulsive Reader.
Wayne, of course, is the founder and shaman of this happy tribe we call Codorus Press. Acid is a collection of 65 of his newspaper columns from his days as a nationally syndicated Generation X columnist in the early 1990s.
Reviewer Sara Hodon says:
“Lockwood’s writing is just the right mix of snark, sarcasm, and cynical observational humor to make it universally relatable to readers. He’s the type of writer that points out the common everyday occurrences that happen to all of us, and as you read you find yourself slowly realizing, “Hey…that happened to me, too!” All at once he is able to capture what makes us all more alike than we think at first. Who hasn’t had the horror of realizing that yes, we are becoming our parents? Or that (gasp!) we may have to find a job that has nothing to do with the successful career we always dreamed of or the schooling we paid thousands of dollars for?
“Lockwood is not pretentious—he doesn’t try to pass himself off as cooler than anyone else. I get the impression that what you read is what you get—he’s this writer earning a living putting sentences together about the world he’s living in.”
