The query of learn how to survive, and learn how to make of it a sort of pleasure, powers a very powerful debut novel of a few years. Named a Finest Ebook of the Yr by: GQ, Kirkus Critiques, Booklist, Library Journal, Time, Esquire, The Washington Publish, Apple, Good Housekeeping, The New Yorker, The New York Public Library,, The Guardian, The A.V.
