“Reading Dan Fox's novel Nine Lives, I felt as though he'd been eavesdropping on my own life, which, like his, seems to have been divided into clear chapters, hopefully with a happy ending! Although it's clearly a love story, I don't find that off putting in the way I do with what's called 'Romantic Fiction. Yes, it's romantic - but in a way that's poetic and sensitive but nevertheless masculine, without being 'macho'. I think that's a rare thing in a writer. Reading between the lines you can feel the author's hurt and sense of regret without it ever becoming cloying; on the contrary, the way he describes his literal and figurative journey through time and space was so compelling I felt I was a fellow traveller - and ironically, just like listening to the greatest Blues music, I found the sense of shared grief, regret and despair enjoyable, entertaining and even uplifting!”
