This review is from: And Sons (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This novel comes laden with praise from critics and famous novelists but I found it tiresome: tricksy, with its facsimiles of barely legible letters, it seems self-indulgent. The narrator is a cypher in whom I could not invest emotionally. Perhaps it's the sort of thing that I would have enjoyed when I was young, but now it feels pretentious.
I dare say it's my fault but I can't recommend it.
