Editorial Reviews

One of the biggest challenges I have with certain clients is convincing them to take a vacation from the platitudes and dogmas that have enslaved them. You're dealing with egos and, with egos, the answer to everything is ‘more me.’ Sometimes the situation calls for less you. After years of corporate drudgery, Drives Nick Reynolds has finally reached the breaking point in a profit-and-loss life and goes on the lam from his own existence. Tassone’s adventures in the realm of big business give him the credentials to examine a man pushed over the edge by everyday stresses. He also has the sly voice to make readers wonder how it will all end for Nick in the same manner we wonder the same thing about ourselves.

— Eric Dezenhall, author of Glass Jaw

When I first read Don Tassone's collection of stories, Get Back, I enjoyed them so much that I was eager to read his novel. Drive did not disappoint. Tassone has the rare ability to make the reader actually enjoy spending time with a central character who at first seems so arrogant and abrasive. That's impressive.

-- Joanna Marshall, Retired Professor of English Literature, University of Puerto Rico
