I just discovered this intriguing author. His debut "Observatory Mansions : A Novel" got published this year in this part of the world and today, just after reading some of the reviews, I decided to delve into it. According to what I've read, it became a bestseller in the US as well as in the UK.
In Poland, many critics point out strong similarities between the style of this author and the one of Bruno Schulz. I was wondering if anyone here, at TLO, has heard of Carey's surreal, dream-like prose.

This should be in Miscellaneous Authors.

No, unfortunately.

P.S. My grandmother and great-aunt are also identical twins. Weird.

Interesting... Americans don't have "plasticine"? Jeff VanderMeer had a lot of positive things to say about Carey's first novel:

For Cdn. members: The Hardcover edition of Alva and Ira is currently discounted at Chapters - http://tinyurl.com/abvjq

It says "Temporarily unavailable to order" but they have a stack of them at the Chapters store here. I would imagine it's the same elsewhere.
