About this item
Typewriters, Bombs, Jellyfish is Tom McCarthy’s own selection of the best of the essays he has published over more than a decade in such places as The Believer and the London Review of Books. It includes essays on writers, of course (Laurence Sterne, Franz Kafka, James Joyce, and Kathy Acker among them), but also on Gerhard Richter, David Lynch, and Sonic Youth—and all of them are written with the same stylish and provocative flare that made McCarthy’s Remainder such a hit. This is an indispensable introduction to the mind and work of one of today’s most brilliant and controversial novelists.
