Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Available again, along with Tlooth, as part of Dalkey Archive's American Literature Series, "Cigarettes" has been called "A brilliant and unsettling book... "(Tom Clark, Los Angeles Times Book Review). It is a novel about the rich and powerful, tracing their complicated relationships from the 1930s to the 1960s, from New York City to Upper New York State. "Cigarettes" has the delicate yet rigorous architecture of latticework: if we concentrate on the light streaming through its apertures we are still attentive to its carpentry; if we focus on its geometry the light is, of needs, a constant presence. It is a triumph of the imagination" (Gilbert Sorrentino).
