The Hunting of the Book

  • SHARES

By Carmen

This week’s edition of New York Magazine has an unusual slant on the obligatory summer reading feature, instead taking a more competitive approach to this season’s most notable debut novels, which MFA students are likely to score big, which authors will be taught in 50 years and what books are regrettably overlooked. Yours truly seems to have lucked out by singling out David Markson‘s work, as Wayne Koestenbaum‘s vote elevates the author of “seminonfictional semifictions” to the so-called winner.
