A Year in Reading: Marcy Dermansky

By posted at 7:39 am on December 12, 2005 0

Marcy Dermansky is a New York author whose debut novel, Twins, came out this fall. It’s been getting good reviews, including a mention in the New York Times this weekend. Marcy was kind enough to share with us the best book she read this year:

coverNotice by Heather Lewis – Not since Haruki Murakami’s Underground has reading a book on the subway made me so uncomfortable. Murakami writes about the massive sarin gas attack on the Toyko subway system; Heather Lewis tells the harrowing story of one nameless young woman. Published after her suicide, Lewis’s second novel takes you into the dark and sinister world of Westchester county. The prose is simple and direct. Notice is difficult to read, often repellent and horrifying, but impossible to put down.

Thanks Marcy!
