A Link to Me

Norm Geras runs a "writer's choice" series, and he kindly allowed me to go on at length about my favorite novel, The Brothers K. You can read the whole thing here. A taste:
Judged on a few technical levels, The Brothers K may not be the best novel I've read, but it's had the longest impact on me. Without resorting to maudlin shortcuts, Duncan conveys the frustrations, consolations, and ultimate joys of human connection in a way that's both open- and broken-hearted, and I've never encountered another writer who renders such a large canvas so intimately.
