Paul Auster | Sunset Park (Henry Holt & Co.)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Tuesday, 09 November 2010 22:50

Equally annoying, this novel seems determined always to tell and never to show, a choice that makes for effortless reading but leaves very little impression once you’ve finished.

Dan Simmons | Carrion Comfort
