Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reading Murnane, one cares less about what is happening in the story and more about what one is thinking about as one reads. The effect of his writing is to induce images in the reader’s own mind, and to hold the reader inside a world in which the reader is at every turn encouraged to turn his or her attention to those fast flocking images."―New York Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

In 1999 Murnane won the Patrick White Award and in 2009 he won the Melbourne Prize for Literature. He lives in western Victoria.

Ben Lerner has been a Fulbright Fellow, a finalist for the National Book Award for Poetry, a Howard Foundation Fellow, and a Guggenheim Fellow. He is the author of Leaving the Atocha Station (2012 Believer Book Award winner) and 10:04. Lerner is a professor of English at Brooklyn College.
