9780141037240: The Unnamed
Review:

The first great book of the decade ( GQ)

A stunner, an unnerving portrait of a man stripped of civilization's defences ( New Yorker)

A writer almost uniquely in tune with modern life . . . Ferris's flashes of brilliance are many ( Evening Standard)

Original, affecting. An almost unbearable love story, between remissions of intense connection and the human inevitability of parting, between the haven of marriage and all that lies beyond ( Observer)

At once riveting, horrifying and deeply sad. Fiction with the force of an avalanche, snowballing unstoppably ( San Francisco Chronicle)

Hugely readable, engaging, original. What an imagination - and what a memorable conceit ( Literary Review)

As hard to pin down as its hero, yet as readable as The Corrections ( Guardian)

Immensely readable, a grand American novel ( New Statesman)

Seizes readers by the lapels with a story that feels serious and mysterious ... He has teased ordinary circumstances into something extraordinary, which is exactly what we want our fiction writers to do ( Economist)

Ferris writes hauntingly on the fragility of our minds and on the compulsions that drive us, despite our best intentions ( Vogue)

Brave and masterful. A writer of the first order ( Boston Globe)

An accomplished and daring work ( Los Angeles Times)

From the Publisher:

Joshua Ferris's The Unnamed has been hailed as 'the first great book of the decade' (GQ).

In an America gone awry with strange weather, New York lawyer Tim Farnsworth suffers a peculiar affliction: the inability to stop walking. While his wife, Jane, struggles to keep their family together in the face of the unfathomable, Tim alone must battle to survive pitiless surroundings, encounters with hostile strangers, and the unrelenting demands of his own body. These challenges force Tim to ask life's most pressing questions, which he answers in a final return on foot across country to reunite with his wife and daughter.

Stripped of all defences, and the sense of hope that lies at the very heart of the American dream, Farnsworth is compelled to confront the terrifying reality of what it is to be a human being.

'A writer almost uniquely in tune with modern life . . . Ferris's flashes of brilliance are many' Evening Standard

'Original, affecting. An almost unbearable love story, between remissions of intense connection and the human inevitability of parting, between the haven of marriage and all that lies beyond' Observer

'A stunner, an unnerving portrait of a man stripped of civilization's defenses' New Yorker
