by Chris Cleave, a review from The New Republic by Lorraine Adams
"Incendiary is Cleave's first published novel. He was at work on another when the Madrid bombings occurred. 'I was so sickened that I stopped writing the novel I was on and began Incendiary,' he said in an interview. He described the abandoned manuscript as a comedy set in 1980s Brooklyn about an undertaker and his wife, a pornographer. Incendiary would be different. 'I wanted to write something very personal, a very simple human story about a victim.'" Read the entire New Republic review.
