The Keeper of the Ferris Wheel
This was my first book, and I have a very long story to tell about it. But that’s another story for another day, and I have no idea if I’ll ever write it.
Get The Keeper of the Ferris Wheel on Amazon.
Some people said nice things about it
This was a nationally published novel, and although it didn't sell lots of copies, some people liked it quite a bit, and most of the reviews were very positive. These aren't Amazon reviews, these are reviews by actual professional reviewers.
I'll let them tell the story for now.
“Most of the fine novels about the Vietnam War have been told by the soldiers who fought there and the politicians who sent them. Not so many are about the war at home. White rushes to fill that void with this emotional, intelligent first novel.”
— Tulsa World
“A strong, compassionate first novel.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Talented, skewed, well-written, stoned, splashy, colorful, sharp, loud, violent, smart. Read it.”

From Publishers Weekly. “White deftly juggles several story lines as he brings his plot to a boil…White seems a promising storyteller who can handle complex subjects with aplomb.”
