"Evokes the power of David Foster Wallace with a narrative that's cerebral, strangely beautiful, philosophical, and pretty, well, brilliant." --Bustle Prizes/accolades and best-of lists that author's debut novel, A Questionable Shape, appeared on: * Bard Fiction Prize 2014 * The Believer Book Award Finalist * One of the Best Books of 2013 --Complex Magazine, Book Riot, Slate, The L Magazine, NPR's 'On Point', Salon "The smartest zombie novel since Colson Whitehead's Zone One." --Ron Charles, Washington Post "Bennett Sims is insanely talented. Over and over again, Sims demonstrates astonishing skill with image. In the details of his characters, Sims is nothing short of brilliant. [A Questionable Shape is] an extraordinarily prodigious debut novel." --Electric Literature "A Questionable Shape presents the yang to the yin of Whitehead's Zone One, with chess games, a dinner invitation, and even a romantic excursion. Echoes of [Thomas] Bernhard's hammering circularity and [David Foster] Wallace's bright mind that can't stop making connections are both present. The point is where the mind goes, and, in that respect, Sims has his thematic territory down cold." --The Daily Beast "Yes, it's a zombie novel, but also an emotionally resonant meditation on memory and loss." --San Francisco Chronicle "Equal parts David Foster Wallace and Richard Matheson [...] A Questionable Shape is certainly the first Proustian zombie novel, but hopefully not the last horror novel of ideas." --Slate -Evokes the power of David Foster Wallace with a narrative that's cerebral, strangely beautiful, philosophical, and pretty, well, brilliant.- --Bustle -The smartest zombie novel since Colson Whitehead's Zone One.- --Ron Charles, Washington Post -Bennett Sims is insanely talented.
