And, while we're on the subject of follow-ups to spectacular debut novels, Tom McCarthy's follow up to his one-of-a-kind debut, Remainder, is now in paperback. As we have yet to find the time in our busy schedule to devote the uninterrupted attention that a novel like this deserves, we will have to leave it to the likes of this year's recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for literature, Jennifer Egan, to recommend this work. She wrote in The New York Times Book Review that C is "a tour de force... An intellectually provacative novel that unfurls like a brooding phosphorescent dream." And, to help you put it in context, The Washington Post reviewer states that with C, "McCarthy reignites the literary pyrotechnics of Perec, Calvino, Joyce and Sebald. Words are celebrated in vocabularic feats... [He] has produced something truly original."
