Richard Godwin

Disembodied previousnext Ekstasis Editions

“Godwin here gives us another master class in ‘power’ writing for the non-timid. Never an unnecessary word, nor a cliché in sight. This is a knock-out piece of writing. Staccato sentences that pile-on, turning the screw shock image by tightly registered shock image—by sheer force. I’ve said it before: Richard Godwin’s terrifying artistic vision and stiletto writing continue to out-Burroughs William Burroughs, the preceding master reporter on social dysfunction and inventor of gripping images of the bizarre. Our dehumanised, demented times, lying in wait, just under the surface. Bravo, Richard Godwin, yet another stunning piece of work.”
~ Stephen Bett’s most recent book is The Gross & Fine Geography:
New & Selected Poems

“I find Richard Godwin to be an exceptional writer with an extraordinarily fine mind. He conducted over two weeks the single best interview I’ve ever been involved with. His novels are always good with crackling dialogue. His latest, Wrong Crowd, is dazzling. Read him.”
~ Luke Rhinehart, author of the bestselling The Dice Man, the book that inspired Richard Branson to found the Virgin Empire
