bookshelves: dystopias, underappreciated-greats

Kevin Barry is a master stylist and what he achieves in his first novel is astounding. The story felt underdeveloped at times and unfolded along the familiar lines of other gangland narratives...not that it matters. The way in which Barry tells this story, and the characters he tells it with, is a perfect balance of nuance and intrigue. I can't wait for his next novel.
