Recensie

Amother-son psychodrama with ghosts and politics, but it s also a tragicomedy about anger and sanctimony in America. . . .Nathan Hill is a maestro. John Irving
A fantastic novel about love, betrayal, politics and pop culture as good as the best Michael Chabon or Jonathan Franzen. People
It broke my heart, this book. Time after time. It made me laugh just as often. I loved it on the first page as powerfully as I did on the last. Jason Sheehan, NPR.org
Funny, endlessly inventive. . . . [a] wild tragicomic tangle of [Hill s] imagination. Entertainment Weekly (A-)
Hill has so much talent to burn that he can pull of just about any style, imagine himself into any person and convincingly portray any place or time. The Nix is hugely entertaining and unfailingly smart, and the author seems incapable of writing a pedestrian sentence or spinning a boring story. . . . [A] supersize and audacious novel of American misadventure. Teddy Wayne, The New York Times Book Review
Irresistible. . . . A major new comic novelist . . . . Hill is a sharp social observer, hyper-alert to the absurdities of modern life. . . . his enormous book arrives as one of the stars of the fall season. . . . readers will find this novel. And they ll be dazzled. Ron Charles, The Washington Post
Hill is an uncommonly profound observer, illuminating much about the relationships between parents and children.. . . Nathan Hill is an important new writer, able to variously make readers laugh out loud while providing a melancholy, resonant tale. Eliot Schrefer, USA Today (4/4 Stars)
"[A] great sprawling feast of a first novel. . . . Hill writes with an astonishingly sure hand for a young author. . . . let's just call him the real thing." Dan Cryer, Newsday

From the Hardcover edition."

If any novel defied an elevator pitch in 2016, it wasThe Nix. Acid critique of millennial entitlement, videogame addiction, and clueless academia; tender meditation on childhood friendship, first loves, and maternal abandonment; handy tutorial on 60s radicalism and Norwegian ghost mythology: Nathan Hill s magnificently overstuffed debut contains multitudes, and then some. . . . the story surges, ricocheting from sleepy 80s suburbia and the 1968 DNC riots to WWII-era Norway, post-9/11 Iraq, and beyond. It s not just that Hill is a brilliantly surreal social satirist in the gonzo mode of Don DeLillo or Thomas Pynchon (a male news anchor s face is smooth as cake fondant; one doomed union is like a spoon married to a garbage disposal ), it s that he does it all with so much wit and style and heart. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly (Best Book of 2016)

Productbeschrijving

'The best new writer of fiction in America. The best.' - John Irving

Nathan Hill's brilliant debut takes the reader from the rural Midwest of the 1960s, to New York City during Occupy Wall Street; from Chicago in 1968, to wartime Norway: home of the mysterious Nix.

Meet Samuel: stalled writer, bored teacher at a local college, obsessive player of online video games. He hasn't seen his mother, Faye, in decades, not since she abandoned her family when he was a boy. Now she has suddenly reappeared, having committed an absurd politically motivated crime that electrifies the nightly news, beguiles the Internet, and inflames a divided America. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high-school sweetheart. Which version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she's facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel's help.

As Samuel begins to excavate his mother's, and his country's, history, he will unexpectedly find that he has to rethink everything he ever knew about her - a woman with an epic story of her own, a story she has kept hidden from the world.
