Good, but not at all like 'Night Work'
on 25 October 2012
I really liked Austrian novelist Thomas Glavinic's last book, 'Night Work', which was taught, mysterious sort-of-thriller/dystopian fantasy, vaguely in the mould of Kafka. I was expecting more of the same but 'Pull Yourself Together' is absolutely nothing like it at all... although I enjoyed it nevertheless, for what it is: a smart, wry, character-driven satire, with an almost cinematic quality, redolent of some US indie movie like 'Rushmore'... to build on the previous reviewer's (spot-on) Wes Anderson comparison. Good then, but not expected.
