Light, by M. John Harrison
“To get the most out of this book, you have to go in boldly, knowing it’s going to be dark and weird and confusing; knowing that not everything will add up, or even register entirely, the first time through. But that’s why you read it again. And again. That’s the highest praise I can offer these days: This is a book worth rereading.”
—Robin Sloan’s second novel is Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore ($25, amazon.com).
