Overview

Carrigan approaches the millennium New Year craving climax and culmination. What he finds instead is constant anti-climax, and lack of definitional consequence for his failures and failings and genius. A conceptual heir to Fitzgerald’s This Side of Paradise, this novel explores everything from Carrigan’s past in the spelling bee as a contemptuous 12-year-old, to his father’s death in Ireland years before, to the depth of mystery, violence, and secrecy that he returns to, both existentially, and literally, as he becomes 21, and then 22, without proper fanfare or notice.

Reynolds shows a unique and special talent for language. The novel is beautifully written and deeply thought provoking. It is meandering and philosophical, but still vivid and energetic; its style is definitely rare in contemporary literature. I don't know how to market such a book, but here's hoping it finds an audience
