T.S. Spivet

Intrigued by Christopher Lydon’s interview with author Reif Larsen (a 45-minute podcast), I asked the nice folks at Amazon to slip The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet onto a brown truck and hey presto it arrived yesterday. I’ll bet that you’ll do something similar once you’ve visited the book’s Web site, though some might be deterred by the last sentence of Philip Marchand’s review:

Like the Smithsonian, the novel is full of acquired curiosities whose significance and place in a larger order is very hard to figure out.

Yes, well, some of us think life’s a bit like that. And some of us (but not all of us) really relish the figuring. Probably the same people who relish Codex Seraphinianus (explore some images)
