Revenge of the Grand Narrative

In Revenge of the Grand Narrative, the oldest man in the world, an activist with a suspiciously persuasive singing voice, and the author of the most anticipated debut novel ever set out to investigate a mysteriously synchronistic earthquake that seems to have leapt from the world of fiction. With similarities to David Foster Wallace’s short stories, Rosenbaum introduces a semi-metafictional tale set in an almost-but-not-quite-science-fiction world.

“Revenge of the Grand Narrative is inventive, imaginative, and very funny – the sentences liquid and surprising. I instantly got all happily tangled in the amazing labyrinth of the plot and of Richard Rosenbaum’s fascinating mind. This is a crazy book by a wonderful writer.”
