He's somewhere between that non-genre literary speculative fiction that British writers like Kazuo Ishiguro or Ian McEwan can produce and the American equivalent of writers like Michael Chabon of Jonathan Lethem with their more genuine love of weird fiction and SF. He's not as new weird as say, Jeff Vandermeer. Whatever, it is, I like it a lot and I think with Red Pill and White Tears he's really hit his stride, although his earlier work is also great.@FlyingMonkey ok realise White Tears is not a beach novel. What else have you read of Kunzru? I’m thinking Gods Without Men and Transmission, very early in the new year. As for classification as a writer where would you position his work in relation to genres. What I’ve read so far of White Tears I’m thinking a mutated New Weird?
He's also got a new column in Harpers magazine, which looks great.Kunzru been on my radar for a bit looking for a place to start too. I've been listening to his podcast and that has made me more interested. Can recommend the podcast but no books yet...
