Check out Christopher Grime’s review of Ted Pelton’s Bartleby, at Bat in The Brooklyn Rail.
Here’s a taste: “Ted Pelton’s Bartleby, the Sportscaster is a well written, enjoyable, and evocative read. It also strikes me as necessary. It’s one of those books you wonder why hasn’t been attempted before, and you hope that someone of Pelton’s caliber ‘updates’ Bartleby every fifty or a hundred years.”
“It’s a moving story, told with a kind of tenderness and restraint you wouldn’t expect to find in a metafictional narrative, where the escape clause of irony is always lurking in the subtext.”
