it was amazing
Read in March, 2010

A finely observed incremental work of perfection. Holy crap, I'm so glad Colson Whitehead exists. Throughout this, I couldn't help but compare CW to DFW -- and this book to Infinite Jest, in some loose way -- but I think I agree with a friend that, because of his more inclusive, less self-obsessed, marginalized and yet non-victim perspective, CW is the better novelist.

Now I've got to get my hands on the rest of Whitehead's books.
