One comment:

  1. Really an utterly self-absorbed failure of a novel. The hype it’s riding on shows the disconnect between tight lit circles and the rest of the world; he’s a darling, but is in no way an accessible darling like Wallace, to which Cohen is sometimes compared. An NPR interview? He’s got a great publicist, I’ll grant you that.

    But then I thought The Goldfinch was a fraud as well, so what do I know?
