Rave Review for “View Finder”

Review of “View Finder” by Greg Jolley

Takes Fiction to a New Level

This is a brilliant experimental take on fiction. Each section functions as a riveting scene, unapologetic, brutal, nightmarish, dizzying, compassionate. BB Danser, the protagonist, is at once servile, cunning, , driven, victimized, and heroic. A compelling read, which I accomplished in one sitting. Jolley’s work is impossible to put down.

~ Elizabeth Randall, Author of Murder in St. Augustine: The Mysterious Death of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley (True Crime)

A Brilliant Demise: The Strange World of the Dansers—VIEW FINDER by Greg Jolley

Greg Jolley’s fictional Danser family blends eccentricity and brilliant obsession in the world of movie making—a family often described as a blend of J.D. Salinger’s Glass family and The Addams Family.

LIVONIA, Mich. Nov. 14, 2019 PRLog — Meet the Dansers: an eccentric family with a dash of brilliant obsession and often visionary madness. In View Finder, BB Danser, the patriarch of the eccentric and zealous Danser family, narrates his life story.

“I’m often asked why I write about one family,” says author Greg Jolley. “It’s like owning a film studio in the 1950s and I have my own delicious cast members to choose from. Most of the Dansers work in the movie industry and are known for passions and obsessions. They live far outside the norms, preferring to pursue their own ambitions and goals, living in stark contrast to everyday normal behavior.”

View Finder takes place during Hollywood’s Golden Age of greed, corruption, and scandal. The son of the famous actress Elizabeth Stark, BB Danser is caught in the middle of his parent’s tumultuous relationship and his father’s crushing megalomania and jealousies. Desperate to escape, he becomes obsessed with movie cameras and cinematic storytelling. A roller coaster story of hope and vision, BB searches for the truth about himself and his family in a world of industrialized fantasy making.

Praise for View Finder“…reads like a Luis Buñuel screenplay adaptation of a Shirley Jackson novel by way of Sigmund Freud, digs into the reader’s forebrain and refuses to go away.” —LibraryThing Early Reviewers

REALITY…

IS IN THE MIND OF THE BEHOLDER

BB Danser, the patriarch of the eccentric and zealous Danser family, narrates his life story in View Finder. Set during Hollywood’s Golden Age of greed, corruption, and scandal, his memoir is one of madness, passion, murder, and his desperate, lifelong effort to escape the confines of real and modern life.

The son of the famous actress Elizabeth Stark, BB is caught in the middle of his parent’s tumultuous relationship and his father’s crushing megalomania and jealousies. Desperate to escape, he becomes obsessed with movie cameras and cinematic storytelling, becoming transfixed with the question: Is it better to view or be viewed?

A roller coaster story of hope and vision, BB searches for about himself and his family in a world of industrialized fantasy making.

“Where’s Kazu?”

bloody rope one

Typed “The End” on “Where’s Kazu?” (w.t.) this morning.

This is the first book of the Maison de Danse Quartet, a Pierce Danser novel set in the winter of otherwise always sunny Florida. It was written as a roller coaster ride for Pierce, as he searches for his lost grandson, Kazu, who has taken up a life of crime among his fellow street urchins. Both Pierce and Kazu are also running from their murderous pasts while each is pursued by those who want them erased. Permanently.

All the best,

Greg
