Ted Thompson delivers an outstanding read in his debut novel, The Land of Steady Habits.
Eight years and several rewrites in the making, this coming of later-in-age story depicts a suburban Connecticut family going through the motions of disarray because of the main character’s search for a deeper something in his life.
As a young writer, Ted Thompson skillfully explores the fears felt by those who long for the good life only to find themselves disillusioned by what they have become. See Steve Donoghue’s excellent book review in Open Letters Monthly: An Arts & Literature Review.
Whether the author chooses to return to the world of Anders Hill or to other scenarios, readers eagerly await for his telling of new tales.
