Atmospheric Disturbances: A Novel

Atmospheric Disturbances: A Novel - Rivka Galchen Murakami meets Jonathan Safran Foer, in some ways. It will be interesting to see where future work takes Galchen: her own voice and style are definitely here, but I think in some ways she was borrowing a lot and falling back on some surreal, almost Borges-like, scenes as safety nets when the plot was getting out of her hands or else needed further prodding. Still, this is a very impressive debut novel and a fun, dizzying read.
