Reader Spotlight: The Dead Do Not Improve

"Odd, dark, comical, confusing," says RIFer Sharon. "It brought to mind Steve Erickson and David Foster Wallace.

Dive into the excerpt below and experience the anticipated debut of Grantland editor Jay Caspian Kang. A #1 Critics Pick, Time Out New York calls it “a modern, satirical detective story… Kang’s writing is funny, stylish and definitely of the moment.” The Dead Do Not Improve is available in paperback from Hogarth wherever books are sold.
