Sea of Possibilities. "How the Light Gets In" by M. J. Hyland and "Tristessa and Lucido" by Miriam Zolan. [review]
M.J. Hyland’s novel "How the Light Gets In" has attracted attention because of its forthcoming publication by the Scottish publisher Canongate, but also because the author’s life resembles that of the novel’s central character, Lou. Where Hyland’s writing is cool and precise, Miriam Zolin’s "Tristessa and Lucido" is a highly emotional description of thirty-something Theney and her life in Prospect, Nebraska.
