Joshua Harmon

One of the books I'm teaching in my advanced fiction class this semester is Joshua Harmon's novel "Quinnehtukqut." It's a really interesting book. A kind of murder mystery. But instead of having the plot reveal the mystery, the reader has to pick out what happened from the scrambled story. In this it's a bit like the first part of The Sound and the Fury, which I am also teaching. Anyway, I deeply recommend this book.

Probably a good time to mention that it's not a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book.

Thanks for this notice, and for teaching the book. I'm especially glad to hear you link it to The Sound and the Fury—one of my favorite novels, and one which certainly had an influence on Q. in several ways.

Looking forward to reading Dear Ra.
