Backstories By Simon Van Der Velde

Backstories By Simon Van Der Velde

These are people you know, but not as you know them. Peel back the mask and see.


Dreamers, singers, heroes and killers, they can dazzle with their beauty or their talent or their unmitigated evil, yet inside themselves, they are as frail and desperate as the rest of us. But can you see them? Can you unravel the truth?

My Thoughts:

This book consists of several short stories that I found really enjoyable, they are thought provoking but at the same time I was trying to guess who they were. The theme to this book is unique but works incredibly well, it is different but in a good way. It made me want to go back for more. When I wasn’t reading it, I was thinking about it. A truly unique book of short stories that is good for the mind.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you to Simon for sending me a copy.
