Clark

If 'A Pilgrim Stranger' can have its discrete thread on TLO, so can this off-topic novel entitled CLARK by Brendan Connell (another TLO member).
I deem this book to be one of the literary greats of the 21st century, humorous and poignant, involving a film star of Italian cinema of the mid-century. I found it inspiring.

Re: Clark

Of all of BC's work that I have read, I think this is my favourite - a really great statement on the life of an artist.

Re: Clark

I'm about halfway through this at the moment and it's unquestionably a major novel that should ideally be getting reviewed by the New York Times and other mainstream outlets. As usual with his books, there's not really much point in comparing it to anything else, although it reminds me a bit of a Nathanael West from another dimension who stuck things out, moved to Italy and pushed himself further than he ever had before while slightly drunk.
