J. Robert Lennon does a lot of what others do too little of. And he does none of everything others do perhaps too much of. Plot, character, dialog. Sure, is all there, but only because he has to. Lennon seems an impatient writer. He elaborates on a premise, complicates, runs with it. He's brilliant, eager to impress. And he impresses, consistently, in all kinds of voices, genres, and veering away, purposely I surmise, from the expected in order to deliver another wrinkle, another bubble.
