9780099436850: The Grand Complication

Alexander Short is a stylish young reference librarian. With his job in jeopardy and his marriage coming apart, Alexander meets the improbably named Henry James Jesson III, a book-lover who hires the librarian for some after-hours research. His task: to complete a cabinet of curiosities chronicling the life of a mysterious eighteenth-century inventor. As the investigation heats up, Alexander realizes there are many more secrets lurking in Jesson's cloistered world than those found inside his elegant Manhattan town house-

Review:

"This attention to detail lends a satisfying completeness to the novel. Kurzweil also displays the journalists ability to explore varied subjects making this an engaging story that deftly and wittily satiates at every level." ( Times Play)

From the Publisher:

A wonderfully entertaining tour-de-force of a novel, reminiscent of Mark Danielewski’s House of Leaves in its wit, humour and sheer brio.
