Review: One of the Best Novels of the Decade

Today in the Quarterly Conversation we are running my review of Sergio De La Pava’s A Naked Singularity, a self-published gem from 2008, which is one of the best novels of the decade.

More details in the review, but this one is really worth your time if you are interested in a bold, ballsy take on crime fiction, with prose and style in the neighborhood of Evan Dara and William Gaddis (not two names I throw around lightly).
