The Sunday Times wrote a great review of Jennifer Egan’s Black Box – ‘a tense, poetic piece of storytelling.’ The Irish Times also reviewed Black Box – ‘The tweets’ minimalism is an intriguing means of introducing questions about choice and that great American watch-word, freedom. It is as though, in Black Box, we are again in the realm of the last frontier pioneered by such princes of paranoid fiction as Norman Mailer, Thomas Pynchon and Don DeLillo.’
