Highly readable with a sense of purpose,
By A Customer
This review is from: How it Ended (Bloomsbury Paperbacks) (Paperback)
McInerney is a writer of great reliability, amusing yet pointed, sad yet forthcoming; his first collection of short stories continues his obsession with contemporary America, his writing underpinned by a pathos that at times hints at Fitzgerald. And like Fitzgerald, McInerney possesses the great quality of being entirely submerged in a culture undone by anomie, whilst retaining the ability to analyse his subjects with objectivity. Moreover, he remains highly readable at all times. A writer defintely worth investigating.
