Matthew Specktor Recommends Mercury Retrograde in the Orange County Register
In the Orange County Register, Matthew Specktor discusses "reading outside the hype cycle" and gives a strong endorsement to Mercury Retrograde.
Q. Name a book you’d like to recommend.
Emily Segal’s “Mercury Retrograde,” which is my favorite new novel of the past few years. Sharp, hilarious, and almost impossibly intelligent, Segal writes like a young Don DeLillo – if DeLillo happened to also be extremely feminist and had total command of internet culture. My friends are tired of hearing me talk about it, but I recommend this book to almost everyone I meet.
