‘Somerville’: A Cerebral Conspiracy of Nazis, Art, and Drugs : THE FRONT PAGE ONLINE

"Despite the novel’s lack of immediate urgency, the result of not fully capitalizing on the drama inherent in the book’s concept and themes, Somerville is a solid debut novel that is informative without being dry or preachy. Stanford trusts in his readers’ intelligence and capacity to pay attention, and in this sense the lack of cheap gimmicks has its benefits. Hopefully, we will see more of the good professor’s erudition in future novels. "
