Review

'Reading Ben Lerner gives me the tingle at the base of my spine that happens whenever I encounter a writer of true originality. He is a courageous, immensely intelligent artist who panders to no one and yet is a delight to read. Anyone interested in serious contemporary literature should read Ben Lerner, and 10:04 is the perfect place to start' --Jeffrey Eugenides, author of The Marriage Plot

'Ben Lerner is a brilliant novelist, and one unafraid to make of the novel something truly new. 10:04 is a work of endless wit, pleasure, relevance, and vitality' --Rachel Kushner, author of The Flamethrowers

'Ben Lerner is a brilliant novelist, and one unafraid to make of the novel something truly new. 10:04 is a work of endless wit, pleasure, relevance, and vitality' --Rachel Kushner, author of The Flamethrowers

'I expected to love and, with relief, did love Ben Lerner's second novel 10:04' --'Book of the Year', Joe Dunthorne, Observer

'[Full of] twisty cleverness and originality' --Literary Review

'10:04 is an even better book than Leaving the Atocha Station, still introspective but more contemplative and tender. It's only the first week of January but I doubt I'll read a finer novel this year' ***** --Daily Telegraph

'Brave and humane... 10:04 is deeply political because it looks imaginatively at our unequal world and creates a renewed sense of possibility about the future' --Independent on Sunday

'10:04 is an accomplished work, and a mature one, and will move as many as it maddens' --Independent

'An impressive and even entertaining book - very well-written and scarily clever' --Daily Mail

'Lerner tiptoes between satire and sincerity to serve up a sparky comedy about the first-world problem of how to live well in the knowledge of wider suffering' --Metro

'Brilliant... Smart, self-absorbed and entertaining, Lerner's musings are tricksy and self-referential, which could be as dull as ditchwater in the wrong hands, but here the literary fun and games are fresh and original' --Sunday Express

'Remarkable... Lerner is doing something different with his metafictional plot: he's showing us, in good faith, how fiction gets written' London Review of Books

'A dazzling meditation on illness, art, intimacy and literature... sublimely funny' -- Sally Rooney, Best Books feature, --Week

'Brilliant... Smart, self-absorbed and entertaining, Lerner's musings are tricksy and self-referential, which could be as dull as ditchwater in the wrong hands, but here the literary fun and games are fresh and original' --Sunday Express
