really liked it
Read in January, 2008

Terrific potboiler with a centripetal narrative, slow to unwind, and a sting at the end. Nice suggestive underweave about what it means to harbor art in quiet places.

Loved the setting in a 40s publishing brain trust, playing sleeper cell to social engineers and self-medicated, barely snookered legmen selling futurism a pulp prices.
