Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

On its surface, The Codex is a coyly unfolding narrative of Oliver Broudy's trip to Prague in pursuit of the meaning of a strange book: "a book of profound moral ambiguity, both beautiful and bizarre, alluring and repellent. A book so explicit that it would be banned by any public library, a book whose pages chronicled the extinction of mystery, and at the same time spawned new mysteries just by existing." Along the way, he meets an outspoken cosmetic surgeon, a mysterious artist of the female form, and--perhaps--the key to his own ambivalence about adulthood. As with his first Kindle Single, The Saint, Broudy's multi-dimensional narrative rests on a keen succession of nested structures, in this case a profile wrapped in another profile couched in a memoir, of sorts. At the level of craft, this alone identifies Broudy as a rising talent. Add the lushness of his language and a succession of scalping insights into modern life, and The Codex makes a compelling case for Oliver Broudy's emergence among the master essayists at work today. --Jason Kirk
