Book Review - 10:04

From Nine To Noon, 10:40 am on 21 November 2014

In the past year, the narrator of '10:04' has enjoyed unexpected literary success, been diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition, and been asked by his best friend to help her conceive a child, despite the fact that he's dating a rising star in the visual arts in New York City. Quasi-autobiographical metafiction. The title refers to the film Back to the Future; it was 10:04 when lightning struck the clock tower. 10:04 was written by Ben Lerner, published by Granta and reviewed by Todd Atticus.
