SpuriousSpurious by Lars Iyer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This novel - the term is a bit loose here as there isn't much of a plot - consists of two characters, W. and Lars, British intellectuals who drink a lot, discuss the end of the world, and their respective failures. In the meantime, the narrator's (Lars's) house is being taken over by fungus. Despite how that summary makes it sound, this book is very funny and I laughed out loud several times. Sometimes, the conversations get redundant, but I think that's designed to show the obsessive and bombastic nature of the characters, making them that much more ridiculous.
