The Incendiaries - R. O. Kwon

Staff Pick

True to the book's title, RO Kwon has crafted a fiery debut that announces her arrival as a new singular voice in American literature. Her first novel, told through three different perspectives, is an interrogation on the nature of love, faith, and identity. The book reminded me of Graham Greene's The End of the Affair as both books tackle a character's investigation into the driving force behind the faith of a beloved in order to shed light into the mystery of why the beloved did the things that she did in the course of the novel. Compelling narrative matched with an eloquent writing style, you can't go wrong with that.
