NY Times Sunday Book Review – My items of interest

To be honest, I’m usually disappointed with the fiction that the NYT book review decides to cover. It seems to always be dominated by overtly commercial swill. Unfortunately this is a reflection of what people are interested in (look at the best seller list, for christ sake). The essays are my favorite part, but this week a few of their fiction reviews were actually good.

This went immediately on my ‘To Read’ list.

‘Real World’ – Natsuo Kirino
“In Natsuo Kirino’s novel, a juvenile killer on the run in Tokyo murders without conscience — and only in retrospect attempts to invent a philosophy to explain his crime.”
