“Many of the protagonists in these stories are jagged, ill-fitting in the roles or self-projections they believe they’ve been cast in, most viscerally encapsulated in Rowena MacDonald’s Burning Man — a soldier deformed from a stint of duty out in Iraq, but secretly a Buddhist and eats vegetarian and practices meditation and ends up richer in spirit than a rich boy with a penthouse. And what about Simon, in Aiden O’Reilly’s The Laundry Key Complex — no definition really fits him, this global itinerant multi-lingual self-righteous know-it-all, other than ‘loser’ with a capital L, and even that is just a facade — a judgement imposed by others? “
