Samedi the Deafness by Jesse Ball
Is it too good to be true…? This postmodern thriller grounds its structure on unreliable trapdoors of falsehoods, false starts, and mistaken identity. The talented Ball has been compared to the likes of Pynchon, Kafka, Hitchcock, and Lynch. The New York Times gave this, Ball’s second novel, a highly favorable review: “Anyone with a taste for the elusive will find that this smart, audacious work becomes as gripping as a good thriller, which it partially resembles.” A limited number of copies of Samedi the Deafness will be available for purchase in the Poetry Center library. Copies will be sold for $13; cash only. Inquire at the front desk to purchase a copy.
