Here is a new and significant book. It is a very difficult novel to summarize but I shall do my best. Firstly, the book is brand new and there are no defects whatsoever to mention. The dustjacket is not price clipped. The author has signed and dated the book directly on the title page. Special Topics in Calamity Physics is a fascinating debut novel from Marisha Pessl. The narrator of the book is as much a unique character as Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye. The plot, which is quite complex, centers on a class in Great Literature and each chapter of the book has a title indicating a particular work and author and contains drawings done by the author herself. It is a compelling and intelligent story with similarities to a murder mystery.However, it is much more than that. Marisha Pessl is an exciting and profound new voice in Literary Fiction. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
