Morgan Parker has a sensational wit and uses it to his advantage in writing the story within a story that is non fric-tion.



It has taken me several days of not thinking about non fric-tion to be able to sit and actually write a review. I had to decide how I truly felt about this novel. Several days later I am now looking at the book through a different set of eyes, and looking on it much more favorably.

This poor man, Morgan, loses everything in his life in one fell swoop. His wife, whom I think he thinks he loves, his daughter, his dignity . . . then he has a hit on the indie author circuit with a quickly thought up book of texting. With this notoriety, and potential for fame and fortune, comes his wife, suddenly desiring marital counseling.

Both Jennifer (Princess B*tch) and Morgan begin counseling from a place of hurt, anger and bitterness, not from love. Through their counseling sessions, and homework each week, they begin to unravel the cloth of what exactly went wrong in their marriage and what role each of them played in its demise.

There is a tone of autobiographical writing in non fric-tion, though I’ve been assured that this author is nothing like his character. The entire cast of characters is entirely, well mostly, believable. They behave in a manner I see consistent with today’s society, from the self-absorbed running from man to man by Princess, to the seeking of self-affirmation by Morgan.

The language is a little tough at times, but again, it represents the situation the author in the book finds himself. Mr. Parker does warn his readers of the adult content, and actually counted the number of f-bombs his characters dropped.

This book garners four stars and a hope for further writing by Mr. Parker.

I didn't know what to expect when I started reading Non Fric.tion especially since the author is a man who writes under a pen name adding an extra layer of mystery and anonymity.

The story's concept deals with Morgan Barker's survival plan when his marriage of more than twelve years ends after his wife walks out of the marital home taking his only child.

I found all the main characters very realistic. They were easy to imagine but not always likeable. Non Fric.tion is full of sharp observational humour which kept me turning the pages. The story reminded me of a literary version of a reality show.

Morgan Barker the 'hero' tells his own story and this makes it both cynical and poignant. The plot is complex and the ending is unexpected.


I usually prefer my reading to have a heavy dose of escapism and this story didn't give me this but it is compelling and appealing in a quirky way. I especially liked the story within the story angle.
If you want something a little different Non Fric.tion is for you.

I received a copy of Non Friction from the author as part of his blog tour in exchange for an honest review. ( )
