The Most Important Thing Happening

I have been a fan of Mark Steele since reading his book Flashbang. That still remains a book I try to read once a year. I find Mark to be the hilarious sort you can hear tell stories over and again.

But this. This was different. All the other books I've read by Steele were non-fiction. The Most Important Thing Happening was a novel. Or, as the sub-title suggests, a novel in stories. I wasn't sure what that meant.

After reading a chapter or two, I still wasn't sure. And if you think you're getting the story out of me, you've really misjudged who you're dealing with. I don't believe in spoilers. Sadly, that means this review will be short. But this is a book you should check out.

While reading, you should pay attention to the minor details. And the minor characters. Because there's no such thing.

Come to think of it, that's a pretty good rule for life.
