Critical Acclaim for How I Became a Fisherman Named Pete

“Disarmingly simple, despite its hairpin twists and buried secrets: Spencer manages to convey the real wonder of discovering life for the first time.” – Kirkus Reviews, March 2003

"The lucid style and unpretentious simplicity of David Spencer's novel is reminiscent of the great Russians, Checkhov especially." – Madison Smartt Bell, author of All Souls' Rising

"David Spencer's How I Became a Fisherman Named Pete has such a clarity and energy and richness of character and prose that the story has an importance and presence in my mind long after I finished the book. It's an old-fashioned narrative in the very best sense – amazing for a first novel, any novel – with an authenticity and authority of voice which lifts off the page." – Susan Richards Shreve, author of Plum and Jaggers
