Books: Indecision

In the NY Times Book Review, Aug. 28, Jay McInerney reviews Indecision, a first novel by Benjamin Kunkel.

“Indecision”… manages to make the whole flailing, postadolescent, prelife crisis feel fresh and funny again, even as it sometimes resembles nothing so much as a self-conscious, postmodern homage/parody of the genre.

The plot takes a somewhat new path for the genre when the hero of the book, Dwight, gains a social consciousness in the end. So it’s on my list of future books to read.
