Product description


'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

'Lerner carries off his conceit with aplomb, thanks to his intelligence, seriousness and gift for social satire' --Summer Reads, FT

'Remarkable... Lerner is doing something different with his metafictional plot: he's showing us, in good faith, how fiction gets written'
'This is an extremely funny book, and a political one. Reading 10:04 is far from a bleak experience. It is filled with moments of transcendence and glimpses of alternative ways of being and perceiving. As the narrator explains to his imagined daughter: "Art has to offer something other than stylized despair." In this dazzling, absorbing book Lerner certainly does' --Guardian

'Lerner's masterclass in metafiction breaches the boundaries between fiction and real-life, narrator and author...this is more than just another navel-gazing Brooklyn novel. It's a clever, funny discourse on the processes of writing fiction, the end result 'a work that, like a poem, is neither fiction nor nonfiction, but a flickering between them.' Lucy Scholes, Observer

'10:04 is a clever book. Lerner's style is tricksy and super-confident. The chronology leaps about nimbly, and modish black-and-white photos illustrate the text. One has to admire the virtuosity' --Independent On Sunday
