A Review of Diego Morrison’s Myth of Pterygium by Kirkus Reviews
Thank you to Kirkus Reviews for their in-depth review of Diego Gerard Morrison’s novel, Myth of Pterygium, winner of the 2021 Rising Writer Prize. Kirkus Reviews calls attention to the “skillful blend of the micro and the macro” in Morrison’s debut novel as well as his ability to write in such a way that “every word is not only meaningful, but also carefully chosen to smartly match its main character’s.”
The short novel offers succinct chapters—sometimes just a few lines—in which every word is not only meaningful, but also carefully chosen to smartly match its main character’s status as an editor, a lover of language, and a failed poet.
