so /lit/, whos pumped for Garth Hallberg's debut novel City on Fire? Has quite the buzz about it, thoughts?
The New Yorker said it's breddy gud but starts to drag. Then again, the reviewer got all excited about how he third person narrator changes emphasis depending on what character the scene is centered around. I thought that was common practice.
I saw news about this like two years ago. Insane that he was given $2 million. Kinda lame to accept that amount when publishing is dying. Anyway it looks ok but I won't read it. Too little meme potential here.

Stay resentful. In the absence of patronage it's the best he can do and we should be glad that it's not another Twilight getting that money.
