THE MOST THOUGHT-PROVOKING NOVEL OF THE YEAR…
My dear friend, and brilliant novelist, Jonathan Miles has a new book out, and I want everyone to read it.
It's called "WANT NOT" — and it's a compelling, lyrical, ambitious, passionate, compassionate, darkly comic, genuinely humane, unforgettable story about waste in contemporary American society (material waste, emotional waste, consumer waste, every kind of waste.)
I don't want to give away too much of the driving, galloping plot, but I will just say these two things:
1) Dave Eggers just wrote a RAVE review of this novel in the NY Times Book Review, and
2) When I read this book in manuscript last year, I called my friend Jonny and told him, "You're going to win the Pulitzer for this." If there is any literary justice, he will.
Read it, you guys.
