This review is from: The Autograph Man (Paperback)
The initial hype around Smith has hopefully now faded so that we can judge her books in a more realistic light - and in that light this is still a great, great novel. The prose is superb, combining jokes, great images, and intellectual references all with a lightness of touch and sense of pace. I found myself rereading sentences just for the sheer pleasure they gave me.
I'll leave others to describe the plot and characters - suffice to say Smith is spinning a lot of plates here, and makes it all look effortless.
