10:04 by Ben Lerner

This amalgam of fiction and autobiography is filled with profound observation, gorgeous prose and a narrative structure recalling the best of Nabokov or W. G. Sebald. With a childlike sense of wonder (and a healthy dose of dismay), Lerner reveals the connective tissue between the Challenger disaster, contemporary art, the film Back to the Future, Superstorm Sandy, a plagiarized poem that shows up (re-plagiarized) in a Reagan speech, and a popular dinosaur that never actually existed. Brilliant work.
