REVIEWS of A MIDLIFE INTERMEZZO**** Four stars (out of five)"Fans of schadenfreude will devour this compelling story of a midlife crisis that deteriorates into obsession. Boas Gonen offers a drama of the human soul in A Midlife Intermezzo, the compelling story of one man's midlife crisis gone awry... The first-person perspective, which can be tricky, is well crafted. The voice is candid and honest. It provides suspense just when the story needs it: 'It was time to quit ...while my sanity was intact, although I wondered whether it wasn't too late for that.' The characters are fully dimensional and fallible ... This is a tale of one man's struggles, providing enough interest to inspire pressing on through all four hundred pages..." -Clarion (Foreword) Review
..".Gonen's writing flows competently, including scenesetting, dialogue and point of view (some sections are in Svetlana's voice); he uses Vip's medical background to good effect, and his discussions of opera are well-informed ..." -Kirkus Reviews.
