Leaving the Atocha Station by Ben Lerner

Lerner’s literary gifts are many: a poet’s command of language, a brilliant eye for detail, and, above all, an open-hearted, essentially child-like compassion for his characters. Telling the story of a drug-addled and socially awkward American poet spending a year abroad in Spain when the Atocha train station is bombed by Al-Qaeda, the book is a grown-up Catcher in the Rye for our time.
