Buzz for Adam Haslett's Union Atlantic

Adam Haslett‘s first novel Union Atlantic is starting to resonate well in advance of publication. Following his widely praised best-selling story collection (and Pulitzer Prize-finalist) You Are Not a Stranger Here, Haslett’s novel “gradually builds into a darkly complex and viscerally disturbing turn-of-the-twenty-first-century morality tale about the individual and communal costs of America’s checkered history of financial malfeasance, racism, youth worship, the built-in brutality of warfare, and the slim chances, if any, that such a culture offers for redress or redemption” (Elle). The Wall Street Journal is buzzing, too. Look for Union Atlantic on shelves February 9th.
