NY Times Book Review Street of Thieves

Open Letter is flushed with New York Times Reviews this spring! Here’s Robert F. Worth’s review of Street of Thieves. Mathias Énard is incredible and I would recommend Zone for anyone interested.

“His sentences spin on and on, acquiring a giddy momentum as they lurch through gutters and brothels and kill zones, ending, as often as not, in some netherworld morning-after epiphany. These lurid narratives are also a bouillabaisse of tacit and open reckonings with the writers who have shaped him, both high and low: Céline, Joyce, Burroughs, Homer, Pynchon, the authors of French série noire thrillers.”
