…Joshua Ferris’s “The Unnamed,” an Adele recommendation.
It took convincing, but she got me to read it. I am glad I did. It is imaginative and compelling, with my expectations, one after another, having the rug pulled from beneath them. I like that in s novel. It was deep too — and daring — and creative in its approach and execution. John Updike meets Samuel Beckett. A significant achievement.
My only disappointment which engaged Ferris about it. In fact, the reviews, while in quality places, were oddly mixed.
These reviews were wrong. Adele was right.
