Emily St. John Mandel's "The Singer's Gun" scoring great reviews

A rave review for Emily St. John Mandel's The Singer's Gun (poised to launch this month) in Sunday's LA Times:
The beauty of the novel is that its key truths are those the reader arrives at on his or her own, without the help of a straight-line narrative or a dominating perspective. Instead, Mandel feeds off of our need to make connections, even when the pattern they form doesn't really exist. We start with anxiety and end with it, thrumming in the background for us to listen in - or ignore, at both cost and reward.

And then there's this from Kristin Bates at Petoskey News-Review:
This engaging novel will have your head spinning with the many twists and backstabbing turns it takes until leaving you with a hopeful feeling along with the possibility of a sequel.

Sounds like another book to put on my list. My husband has one of her others--Beyond Black (at least I think that's her) and thought it was fascinating.

No, that's Hilary Mantel (also wrote Wolf Hall.) Emily St. John Mandel's debut novel was Last Night in Montreal. This is her second. A really terrific young writer. You'd love her, Dr. KatPat.
