3:AM NOVEL OF THE YEAR 2007
Our novel of the year could have been Tom McCarthy‘s Men in Space, Matthew De Abaitua‘s The Red Men or Steven Hall‘s Raw Shark Texts, but we had to choose only one and that one is David Lalé‘s remarkable but strangely-overlooked Last Stop Salina Cruz (Alma Books).

Tom Bradley‘s Fission Among the Fanatics.
A literary giant among pygmies.
