Ben Lerner

I read Ben Lerner’s The Topeka School on audible, and loved it but knew I had missed too much. So now I’m reading it in print (well, digital print). It is a beautiful book and his mastery of the craft of writing is stunning.

I liked it so much that I immediately read 10:04 This is a novel clearly written by a poet. It is short, lyrical, and elegiac.

You can find both in my tiny bookshop.
