Taut is a book you can judge by its cover. Or at least its name. Watkinson weaves a tight narrative that you’ll find impossible to put down. Yes that’s a cliche but I literally could not leave my beach chair while reading this book (and I was in Hawaii!). The characters compel the reader to shout back at them as they make a series of questionable choices — choices made all the more maddening because they’re the ones you might make too. Choices maybe you have already made.
The story could be ripped from today’s headlines and at the end you feel a huge sense of “there but for the grace of god…” Despite the familiar themes, don’t look for predictability in the pages of Taut. As an actor himself Watkinson seems to know full well how to avoid Hollywood cliches and endings.
Seriously, buy this book. Take some time off work. And prepare those around you both for the ongoing verbal outbursts you’ll have reading Taut and for the fact that you might be occupied for a few days.
