Kirkus Reviews – The Man from the Sky

“In this short but sweet novella, Wynn spins an enjoyable tale of lost souls colliding in the most unlikely of places.

Conjuring shades of Steinbeck’s meditations on nature, this enjoyable, pleasant yarn passes like the cool summer breezes described within its pages…an enjoyable tale of lost souls colliding in the most unlikely of places.

There are real moments of beauty and wonder as well as passages that speak of Wynn’s ability to understand the inherent frailty of the human condition:

He felt like he was gradually being erased. As if his lack of meaningful human contact and lack of function was causing him to disappear, parts of him already transparent, holes that other people could see through. He was afraid that one day he’d look in a mirror and wouldn’t see anyone.

Wynn understands the value of honestly drawn and organic characters in moving along a plot.

Stefan discovers that perhaps Jaime’s subdued, quiet way of living is just what he’s needed all along, and Jaime hesitantly longs for a taste of the adventures that Stefan has been struggling through all his days. Sometimes, as the novel shows, what we want isn’t necessarily what’s best for us.”
