Ander Monson…Montecore may be best thought of as a mash-up of names and stories, conflicting memories and rebuttals, and characters playing different roles…The novel is at its most exciting on the level of linguistic performance. A constantly changing creole, its voice shifts registers and references, revealing the substantial emotional gaps that open up in characters and cultures when they're remixed in this way…the novel is funny, ambitious and inventive. Also black: rage and tragedy pulse beneath the fireworks.
