IMPRESSIVELY FUNNY IN THE RIGHT LIGHT
Down The Hall Book Club February pick is The First Bad Man > FEBRUARY 16
"The First Bad Man is the first great novel of 2015."
"[Miranda July is] the type of artist—word used with confidence and sincerity—who tends to be dismissed (or worse, backhandedly complimented) as “quirky,” but whose work is tied together by her singular, confident, multifaceted voice. Her characters are often unusual and under-confident; her writing is always the former and never the latter. The First Bad Man is quirky, yes, but also beautifully worded, emotionally complex, impressively but quietly insightful, and, in the right light, so, so funny."
-- from Josh Modell's review on the A.V. Club
The February 2015 DTHBC selection is The First Bad Man by Miranda July.
