More Rave Reviews for Vroman's Authors

A full account of the James Frey event at the Whisky is forthcoming, but I wanted to point out, for all who may have missed it, that Joseph O'Neill's novel Netherland got a rave review by Michiko Kakutani in today's New York Times:
If some of these passages reverberate with echoes of “The Great Gatsby” and its vision of New York — “the old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailors’ eyes,” the “fresh, green breast of the New World,” which nourished its hero’s belief “in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us” — the reader can only surmise that they are entirely deliberate, for, like Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, Joseph O’Neill’s stunning new novel, “Netherland,” provides a resonant meditation on the American Dream.
Joseph O'Neill will be discussing and signing Netherland at Vroman's on June 25.
