Review: Flatscreen by Adam Wilson


It is no surprise that Eli Schwartz’s anthem is Kurt Cobain’s “All alone is all we are.” Because that is precisely who Eli is--a twenty-something lovable loser in Quinosset, Massachusetts, who really should be attending college but instead whiles away his hours doing nothing but drugs and soaking in “culture” from his flatscreen TV. 

The rest of the review can be found here.

Thanks to Netgalley for a copy of the galley.

  1. Thanks for the review. I recently read and reviewed this one too. When I was reading it I wanted to both hug Eli and also shake some sense into him. For a kid that appears so self-aware, it was hard to understand why he couldn't pick himself up and DO SOMETHING.
