I had heard rumblings about a superb, big novel forthcoming from Dalkey Archive by someone with whom I wasn’t familiar named Joshua Cohen. It’s called Witz, it’s coming in May 2010, and I recommend you read an excerpt at the Dalkey website. I absolutely love his prose in this excerpt, and the plot, such as it is, or the concept of the novel, sounds fascinating. There is a bit of Joyce influence in the prose (lots of unusual compound words), but it’s definitely Cohen’s own voice. I am looking forward to reading the whole thing.
