Quicksand by Steve Toltz

Steve Toltz is the author of one of my favorite all time one hundred books, A Fraction…

This Might Win The Booker Prize

I used to think that ‘The Corrections’ was the greatest thing I’d ever read, but I’ll have to say that ‘A Fraction of the Whole’ is better than ‘The Corrections’. Toltz did it in one book. Franzen took two to get ‘The Corrections’ out into the world. Granted, you have your whole life to write your first novel, but my God, ‘A Fraction of the Whole’ does things in 530 pages that most writers can’t do in a lifetime.
