Martin Dressler by Steven Millhauser

I don’t know why I like this book so much, but it probably has something to do with everything James Wood says in How Fiction Works.

Martin Dressler is a damn fine read and I make no apologies for not being more articulate and eloquent on the matter. Some books you just read and recommend; consume and pass on. No need to pontificate excessively. If you want praise and explanation, any of the many glowing blurbs plastered around the book will suffice. They’re all dead on.

I eagerly look forward to enjoying Millhauser’s latest work, Dangerous Laughter, currently being lavished with praise by the New York Times as one of 2008’s best books.
