The Kindly Ones

I just ordered Jonathan Littell's The Kindly Ones.

My friend Peter mentioned the novel several weeks ago when I ran into him on the street. I knew I had to read it when he mentioned that it was heavily influenced by Maurice Blanchot's book Faux Pas.

The Kindly Ones is a novel we'll certainly be hearing a lot about in the coming weeks.

The always astute Mr. Stephen Mitchelmore provides some much needed perspective on recent reviews, including the one in today's NYT here.

Happy Tuesday.
