A lot of fuss been made over Charles Bock’s Vegas-based literary debut Beautiful Children most of it by the NYT, which variably over-hyped then under-loved it. Have to say I side with Maslin on this one; BC is nothing if not ambitious, but it’s all gamble and no payoff.

Read the first chapter at (where else?) the NY Times, or download a PDF of the novel for free (!) from Amazon for a limited time.
