WAYS TO DISAPPEAR by Idra Novey

Idra Novey’s WAYS TO DISAPPEAR was reviewed in Kirkus and received a starred review in Publishers Weekly, which said, “Idra Novey’s briskly paced first novel is a clever literary mystery and a playful portrait of the artist as a young translator…it has its share of violence and romance—it reads like an Ali Smith novel with a fun Brazilian noir vibe. But underlying these comic noir elements is an eloquent meditation on the art and anxiety of translation, as well as a story about literature as a means of revelation and concealment…”

The book was also noted as a book to watch Travel & Leisure, and Bustle, in which Meredith Turits said, “Idra Novey is also a published poet, and it shows in the insightful language of Ways To Disappear, which centers on a famous Brazilian writer who seems to have disappeared. Novey’s brilliant sentences are only one reason to look forward to this wonderful novel, which is already gathering tons of big-name fans. Count me among those excited about it.” Little, Brown publishes the book on February 9, 2016. http://www.hachettebookgroup.com/titles/idra-novey/ways-to-disappear/978…
