Making the Americans read about cricket

Joseph O’Neill, author of Netherland, continues to be the darling of the literary press. This time the Daily Telegraph talks him up….I have a sneaking feeling the British press like him so much because he managed to make the Americans read a book about cricket.

“All my books were out of print when Netherland was bought so I was practically dead and buried as a writer,” he says. And then came extravagant praise in The New York Times and The New Yorker. “My life changed in the space of four days. It was amazing.”
