Acclaimed poet and novelist Ben Lerner follows his dazzling fiction debut novel, Leaving the Atocha Station, with another wondrous novel in 10:04 (Faber and Faber). Again the protagonist is a writer, and again there is a narrative of perceptive, sharp, urbanly-informed observation and insight. There is also a lot of life here. “Ben Lerner is a brilliant novelist, and one unafraid to make of the novel something truly new. 10:04 is a work of endless wit, pleasure, relevance, and vitality.” –Rachel Kushner. “Reading Ben Lerner gives me the tingle at the base of my spine that happens whenever I encounter a writer of true originality.” – Jeffrey Eugenides. Ben Lerner’s three poetry collections, all published by Copper Canyon – The Lichtenberg Figures, Angle of Yaw, Mean Free Path – have received numerous honors and accolades, a National Book Award finalist citation among them. Leaving the Atocha Station won the Believer Book Award.
