The first time Patrick O’Reilley tore up a newspaper, he was two years old and had yet to speak his first words.

I don’t think I can ever stop writing about the brilliance that John Bennett brings to literature, and this is more than true about his fine novel Tire Grabbers. Here is a novel that can give J.R.R. Tolkien a run for his money.

I absolutely love this novel, for John Bennett is an original: a magician who doesn’t merely go on a quest but cuts through its center with precision and a harmony of language. You might say that this is a novel of bruised magic, a book that the reader will not easily put down, and in my opinion. In my opinion, Bennett’s one novel that screams to be made into a movie is Tire Grabbers. I do not know a writer (and trust me, I know a lot of writers), but I do not know a writer, who is as clean and hardworking as John Bennett. Here is a true American original, a man who can take prose or poetry and twist it into a mean, homespun boogie. Here is a writer of illumination and insight. I guarantee this, once you purchase a copy of Tire Grabbers and start reading, it’ll be very hard to put the book down.

Okay, so I said my say here. I am a hardcore of John Bennett’s. In my eyes, the author can do no wrong. So order a copy of Tire Grabbers. It’s a purchase you will not regret.

Order from the Publisher.
