Clockwise counting 27/50: Dana Spiotta
- Stone Arabia
Someone recommended this, it was a new book and it got good reviews in a number of American newspapers. So I read it on my iPad on a flight from Helsinki to Bangkok. And yes, it is certainly readable and somewhat interesting if you like to know about a fictitious strange strange Californian 70s imaginative rock star and his younger sister who idolizes him.
Better than watching something from Disney on the inflight entertainment system but not something that will be remembered or reprinted in the 2020s. Very American, maybe better for real Americans, Californians especially.
Spiotta has got some literary awards and is a recognized serious author in the same country.
