Book Review: Andrés Neuman's Traveler of the Century

I've been fortunate enough to review—within the last year and change—three new novels by contemporary authors that have turned out to be so absolutely, mind-bogglingly superb that they rank among my all-time favorite books.  The first two were Tom McCarthy's C and Jesse Ball's The Curfew.  The most recent is Traveler of the Century by the young Argentine novelist Andrés Neuman.  The enigmatic book is overflowing with ideas—about philology, philosophy, love, translation, nationality, art, history, and more—and the richly conjured characters and landscapes will linger long past the last page.  Read my review of the novel for The L Magazine HERE.
