Casi is a hotshot public defender working on the front line of America's War on Drugs. So far he's on the winning side. He's never lost a case. But nothing lasts forever, and pride like his has a long way to fall. Funny, smart and always surprising, A Naked Singularity speaks a language all of its own and reads like nothing else ever written. Casi's beautiful mind and planetary intelligence make him an inimitable and unforgettable narrator. In De La Pava's hands, the labyrinthine miseries of the New York Justice System are as layered and diabolical as Dante's nine circles of Hell. But the Devil doesn't hog the best lines. There are plenty here to go around.

Review:

'Like 'The Wire' written by Voltaire ... Unputdownable' Robert Collins, Sunday Times. * Sunday Times * 'Casi's voice is astonishing, cynical but compassionate, alive to the ridiculous and the pitiful and the horrific but never losing its commitment to morality' Lian Hearn. * Lian Hearn * 'A propulsive, mind-bending experience ... a thrilling rejoinder to the tidy story arcs portrayed on television and in most crime fiction' Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal. * Wall Street Journal * 'If you like 'The Wire', if you like rewarding, difficult fiction, if you like literary, high-quality artistic and hilarious yet moving novels that are difficult to put down, I can't recommend A Naked Singularity enough' Scott Bryan Wilson, The Quarterly Conversation. * Quarterly Conversation * 'Ambitious, affecting, intelligent, plangent, comic, kooky and impassioned. I've read a lot of novels this year, between judging the Man Booker prize and the Granta Best of Young British Novelists, and I've yearned for this kind of exuberant, precise fiction' Stuart Kelly, Guardian. * Guardian * 'A great American novel: large, ambitious, and full of talk' Alex Good, Toronto Star. * Toronto Star * 'A fine encyclopedic romp in the Joyce / Pynchon / Wallace tradition' Miles Klee, The Notes. * Notes * 'Crime and Punishment as reimagined by the Coen Brothers' The Millions. * Millions *
