Item description for Paperback Writer by Stephen Bly...

Detective Toby McKenna is brilliant and fearless. Unfortunately, he exists only in the mediocre novels of Paul Watson---McKenna's polar opposite. When Toby "intrudes" on Paul's run-of-the mill, humdrum Christian life, will truth become stranger than fiction? Find out in Bly's story-within-a-story about the roles we play and who we really are.

Reviews - What do customers think about Paperback Writer?

from another paperback writer  Jul 5, 2006
I enjoyed Paperback Writer. Bly messed with my head making it clear that not only did his protagonist not know what was real and what was imagined, but neither did I. My wife and I took turns reading on a trip and often stopped and looked at one another when it took another 180 degree turn, catching us off guard and keeping us off balance. He took a chance with this book and in my opinion it works if the reader is willing to go with it. I also very much identified with the conclusions the writer reached about his writing and found them very applicable to my own writing.

interesting  Oct 12, 2004
I have read a lot of Stephen Bly's books and this one is by far the best one. The man in the story is coming to terms with himself. He is tired, stressed and is wondering if he should keep on writing. In the end he discovers that doing what Jesus wants him to do is always the way to peace. A fantastic book. Really makes you think and ponder. And don't forget the topic of the book-God.
Pick a side, already!  May 2, 2004
The Christian parts are distracting and gratuitous. The author is straddling the border between two different types of stories, and the book suffers because he fails to choose a side. Either the book can be about a man who is coming to terms with his life, or it can be about a man who is coming to terms with his God. Either one would have been stronger than this, a story about a religious man who retreats into a fantasy world.
not half bad  May 2, 2004
Stephen Bly's Paperback Writer pushes the envelope of the bizzare. Better yet it rips it open, spilling the contents of controlled chaos into the readers lap.
This book is The Odyssey meets Neil Simon's Jakes Women. A moderately famous writer making his way home after completing his latest work, taking along a host of imaginary (or real?) friends.
The humor in Paperback Writer is dangerously funny. Set in such a contextually strange manner, that some passages have to be re-read, but this only adds to the fun.
A truly unique reading experience.
Beatles' Song Was Better  May 2, 2004
The story was confusing, the Christian aspects served no purpose, and the characters were not developed so that we could like them.
