Will Chancellor is the guest. His debut novel, A Brave Man Seven Storeys Tall, is now available from Harper.
The Daily Beast says
To compare a debut novel to Infinite Jest is likely either too flippant or too generous, but consider the bona fides…Will Chancellor’s wonderful debut novel…more than merely promising, is one of the best of the year.
And Kirkus, in a starred review, calls it
Bracingly rich…the author maintains an almost thrillerlike pace while taking well-aimed shots at academic and art-market fads and helping two lost souls through essential transformations.
Monologue topics: hellishness, annoying/hectic day, ATT customer service, ultrasounds.
