Kirkus Reviews gushes for Diane Lawson's debut Kirkus Reviews gushes for Diane Lawson's debut
August 27, 2014

Kirkus Reviews published a gushing review of Diane Lawson's debut mystery—A Tightly Raveled Mind—on its website this week. The review will also be featured in the September 15, 2014, print issue.

The review reads: "A cunning, elegantly written comedy of manners in the form of a murder mystery in which a psychoanalyst finds her wealthy clientele dropping. Literally… The police believe these deaths to be accidents or coincidences; and since Nora, being a dedicated Freudian, believes in neither, she seeks help from an ex cop–turned–private detective named Mike Ruiz, whose sneering contempt for Freud seems to be shielding his own private demons. You’d think being in a world populated by such tightly wound neurotics would get dreary or annoying, or both. But Lawson, herself a San Antonio–based psychoanalyst making her publishing debut, makes the journey a pleasant one with a witty, assured narrative style that renders both physical and emotional scenery with economical astuteness and grace… Remember how amazed Norman Mailer was after reading George V. Higgins’ first novel that a member of 'the fuzz' could write so well? Well, let it likewise be asserted of Lawson: This shrink can really throw it down."

"Words should fly like airplanes over custom offices and international borders, and should land in all the fields" - Vicente Huidobro
