Beautiful Children

I'm preoccupied with other more important things, to my dismay, but enjoy today's review of the super-hyped debut novel from Las Vegas novelist Charles Bock. My review of Beautiful Children appears in the spotlight section of today's Rocky Mountain News. And you might as well read the NYT profile of the author that's got the book world all a-twitter. And it is actually worth a visit to the book's creepy official site, where you can enjoy some West Coast punk rock tunes that inspired its creation.

At the Rocky, There's also a nice feature review by Jenny Shanks of Russell Banks' new book, The Reserve, as well.
