Awaiting Your Reply…
Hearing so many good things about Dan Chaon’s new Await Your Reply, including references to it being Lynchian (doubt it), and ‘the first great novel about the Internet‘ (which is, respectfully, totally not true, what about The Sluts?)
Anyhow, I’m curious, if yet not fully sold on the prospect, partially because of the hype and partially because whenever I open up to possibilities of this size that seem too good to be true, they usually turn out to be (especially in such huge markets): so I’m asking you. Anybody read this yet? Reactions/thoughts?
Any other overlooked great novels about the internet? (I hate seeing internet capitalized, I don’t know why, it’s just like god.)
