Litt My Fire

Leave it to Sarah to beat my ass on the Toby Litt front. His new novel, Ghost Story, is reportedly opens with a nonfiction section, whereby Litt writes about his girlfriend’s three miscarriages, and then launches into the novelistic portion about a young couple dealing with loss. I thought Litt’s Beatniks was enjoyable enough, but it’s nice to see that the man’s truly living up to his Granta 20 mantle with daring experimentation.
