    • I’m going to let the text of 10:04 by Ben Lerner do all the talking for me. This excerpt comes from page 47 of the book. See you at the bottom!“So this is how it works, I said to myself, as if I’d caught an ideological mechanism in flagrante delicto: you let a young man committed to anticapitalist struggle shower in the overpriced apartment that you rent and, while making a meal you prepare to eat in common, your thoughts lead you inexorably to the desire to reproduce your own genetic mate [...]



    • I read this book - the first time -over a year ago -after a 'Lisi-girls' - day in Walunt Creek --lunch and bookstore playing. This was an indi-treat purchase. I came home and started reading it immediately, but then set it down. I picked it up again and started from the beginning. .t it down again --- - picked it up again - ( several cycles of reading: stop-start-stop). Eventually gears kicked in - and "10:04" had my undivided attention. The writing itself is thought-provoking-- invigorating at [...]


    • I truly love this book. 10:04 works like a drug, heightening thought and drawing awareness to thought. Lerner maps out the history, science, emotions, objects, habits, and vibes that make up the complexity of each felt moment. Beautiful meditation on language. A real blast to read! Does things I've never seen done! Things that recall Barth and Barthelme and Coover. It is personal while largely fabricated. It dances between life and fiction. The cover feels amazing to the touch. Epically "of the [...]


    • Spectacular - a book to come back to. It is certainly not for everyone, and I'll recommend it more gingerly than many books that I've liked less. I'll try to go into why here.10:04 (a great reference) has something of Wallace in how it takes pleasure in its own form, something of Sebald in its meandering, something of Vonnegut (oddly enough) in its looping, something of Roth in its pseudo-memoirishness. It is more than anything else a great New York novel, and I felt envy while reading it. It do [...]


    • The story is very aware of itself. It's the kind of story that looks in the mirror all day, rearranging its artfully disheveled bangs. I've called it a "story" twice but it's really more of an exercise. Kind of like spending an hour on a stationary bike. Afterwards, you feel like you've accomplished something but you're still in the same exact place.



    • 10:04 is a novel about how Ben Lerner signs a contract to write a particular novel, and then does a bunch of other things rather than write it. He goes to an artists' colony in Texas, where he works on poetry instead of on the novel. He decides whether to serve as a sperm donor for his best friend Alex, who cautions him not to put her in his novel. He weathers two (literal) hurricanes. He serves as a "big brother" of sorts for an elementary school student (they self-publish a brief book on dinos [...]


    • Here's a longish review ("Warm Core: The Unusually Associative Cyclonic System of Ben Lerner’s 10:04") I wrote soon after the book came out in mid-September that's just appeared in the Dec–Jan issue of the Brooklyn Rail: brooklynrail/2014/12/b The key insight: "The world rearranging itself around the narrator sounds a lot like solipsism, but instead of masturbating to Internet porn, the center of the rearranged world in this case does so in a fertility clinic to impregnate his best friend. T [...]


    • Well for one thing, I can't stand this title. 10:04? Who'd pick that? My favorite time is 4:30. That's when all my shows start coming on. Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown, The People's Court, and Cops. Then the news! I love the news. But I did NOT love this book. Sorry, Ben. There's a bunch of pictures in here. This isn't a photography book. What are you, Ben? A photographer? NO YOU'RE NOT! A POET. AND POETS ARE SUPPOSED TO RISE ABOVE. Ben did not rise above. This character just seemed petty to me. L [...]


    • 10:04 marks a time particularly important in film-and the relationship of that film to this book. This book is quasi-factual, quasi-memoir, quasi-fiction in which those lines are constantly shifting and blurring. The author has had unusual success with his first literary work and is now facing a possibly fatal medical condition in a New York City that may be underwater at any moment. The writing is brilliant. I had one particular favorite sentence that I insisted upon reading to anyone (and ever [...]


    • 22:04 modern hayatın, modern insanın dünyasını tuhaf bir şekilde samimiyetle anlatan bir roman. Kitapta üzerine konuşacağımız çok şey var. Sağlık, sanat, modern sanat, şiir, ırklar arası fırsat eşitsizliği, üreme, edebiyatın maddi karşılığı, komplo teorileri, gelecek gibi. Ama bunların hepsini buraya yazsam da 22:04'ün samimiyetle gösterdiği şeyleri karşılar mı, bence karşılamaz. Nedir peki bunların ötesindeki anlam? Bilemiyorum, belki modern insanın çok [...]


    • "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means". Inigo Montoya (Princess Bride)10:04 would make a great end-of-term paper for a certain type of creative writing course. It would score full marks for showing the writer's ability to use a thesaurus. The golden rules of this novel are to never say pigeon when you can wittily refer to "stout-bodied passerines" (your wit is shown all the more by doing this several times in the book), never say "it was foggy but not snowing [...]


    • Pretentious hipster lit. Couldn't shake the feeling from the get-go that here was an author, fresh out of Iowa or some other esteemed writers program, trying desperately to prove himself capable of producing something artful. It's such a shame since I loved Atocha Station, identified strongly with its narrator's aimlessness and thought the book offered keen insights on the creative process. But Lerner's follow-up is dreadful. The story (if you can call it that, seeing as so very little happens) [...]


    • Ben Lerner's first novel, "Leaving the Atocha Station" was one of the most powerful reading experiences I've ever had, largely for purely personal reasons; I started reading that book (set mostly in Madrid and Barcelona) literally a day after I myself had concluded a visit to Spain, and seeing almost all of the places I had just visited serve as the background for that books gorgeous, misanthropic, elegantly sad narration was an extremely potent experience; like having a much more cynical, much [...]


    • Sul punto di esistere“E così l'autore si ritrovò, col corpo ancora un po' appesantito dai residui di un anestetico dissociativo per uso veterinario, a viaggiare per quindici chilometri sulla statale 67, per dare un'occhiata alle famose “luci fantasma” insieme a un uomo sul quale aveva sovraimposto l'immagine di uno spettro.”Hai la sensazione di muoverti seguendo una mappa mentale, fatta di astrazioni e percezioni emotive, pensieri e stati d'animo, nella quale le strade si rigenerano, g [...]

    • yarı kurmaca yarı gerçek, son derece doğal bir roman. new york'la istanbul'un benzerliklerini, beyaz yakalıların ya da sanatçıların kaygılarının aynılığını görmek çok acayiptidern insanın takıntıları (sağlık, doğallık, üreme vs) o kadar gerçekçi bir biçimde anlatılmış ki yazarı içtenliği ve cesareti sebebiyle kutlamak gerekiyor. en saçma korkularını, kapitalizmle savaşımını ve biraz da boşunalığını anlatmış, bizi bize göstererek


    • ​Intellectual books can be wonderful. Books about intellectualst so much. I exaggerate for effect, but that happens to be the case here. Books about writers are not easy to pull off. Books about intellectual writers even harder because it's not as easy to invest emotionally in an intellectual as it is an actor, one who spends their timing doing, living, feeling, reacting versus one who spends paragraph after paragraph offering up critical and philosophical analyses of various occurrences and o [...]


    • Terrific, like a scalding espresso on an icy morning. This is the book I need to be reading now. I read and loved its Iberian predecessor Leaving the Atocha Station earlier this year. From the opening scene, in which the author watches a man break down in front of a painting, and feels pangs of doubt about his own connection with his art, Lerner wrote with honesty and an indefatigable commitment to the search for artistic vision. It was a bildungsroman for this hyper-knowing, ironic and distract [...]


    • "I know it's hard to understand / I am with you, and I know how it is," as if in winking acknowledgement of how baffling and frustrating this book gets. Read it not for the story, given there isn't really a single central one, but a bunch of them tenuously linked together by somewhat clumsy meditation/ramblings on Time, and also sometimes on Art. My feelings on this fall on the mixed side, hence the middling three-star rating that's more a placeholder than actual score, as some parts worked nort [...]


    • It is not one of those really 'well-written' books that are featured in various famous book-lists — probably because every once in a while, it leaves the main string, to which it was attached on the first, and leaves the reader in an isolated place — but in some places, it does have some provocative ideas with a really good voice, and has some striking poetic tangents like this:—


    • I re-read this novel two months after first reading it, to see if it could hold up to a necessarily closer examination. For the most part it did. My level of enthusiasm was certainly lower, but I still greatly enjoyed Lerner’s prose style, ideas, and motifs.This time around I saw a lot more Kundera in Lerner, in his use of motifs, in the way he structured the novel around set-pieces, and in his narrator’s emphasis on honesty in the midst of playful deception. But the level where the honesty [...]


    • Che gran libro!Ho usato tutto il tempo libero degli ultimi due giorni per leggerlo. Insomma, come puoi fermarti quando stai leggendo qualcosa di favoloso?E' un libro difficile da raccontare. Perché non ha una trama ben definita. Perché c’è molta vita (presumibilmente) vera mischiata a fiction. Almeno questa è l’impressione generale.Lerner è un gran paraculo. Uno che aveva un po’ di idee niente male in testa e un racconto già pronto (e pubblicato sul New Yorker) e ha trovato il modo v [...]


    • Ben writes about his external griefs, afraid of being a fraud, anxiety, friendships, surroundings, family, and love and not so in love in just a brilliant and beautiful stream of prose. Not once do I get the visual of him sitting at his desk writing this book and trying to find words to try and make him sound clever and important. It reads like he's writing for himself just trying to condense everything down so as to see what was real and what was fiction to keep it all together and accept his f [...]


    • Ben Lerner ha scritto un romanzo brillante. Ha concepito una struttura che gli permettesse di condurre la partita per tutto il tempo e di far scattare il meccanismo soltanto alla fine. Ha giocato con intelligenza, eleganza e ironia. E ha utilizzato la poesia, che è il mondo da cui proviene, perché la sua storia può muoversi in qualunque direzione, proprio come la poesia. Perché ogni verso si può leggere in mille modiratchbook/2015/05/ne


    • Nel romanzo "Nel mondo a venire", il protagonista, scrittore trentatreenne, (di cui non viene detto il nome, ma che potrebbe essere lo stesso autore) racconta in prima persona la sua storia, ambientata a New York; il successo ottenuto dall'uscita del suo primo libro ha portato vari editori a contendersi i diritti per il suo prossimo lavoro, che durante tutto il romanzo tenta disperatamente di scrivere, forse aspirando a diventare un nuovo Walt Whitman, mentre in realtà sembra non essere capace [...]


    • You think you have problems? Ben, the narrator of Ben Lerner's sarcastic, intelligent new novel, 10:04, has you beat. While he's struggling to write a follow-up to his first novel now that he's gotten a generous advance, New York is under threat of two serious hurricanes (Irene and Sandy), and his longtime best friend wants to have a baby with him—whether he wants to be involved or not. Oh, and at any time, his aorta could rupture, so he's convinced himself he has every symptom imaginable.10:0 [...]


    • I have to say that, in general, there is nothing duller than a writer talking about how tough it is to be a writer. That is how this novel started out. I understand why people could view it as "pretentious." At first I found myself very put off by the overwhelming reflection on mundane objects or situations, the way the narrator would seem to obsess over them.BUT! I still found myself picking up this book every night. It was not a chore to read (most of it). And the obsessing eventually played i [...]


    • Once in a very long while I read a book I dream of writing, so imaginative in its structure to shatter conventions, so insightful in its web of characters and stories to feel like life itself. 10:04 is such a book. Its the novel that its narrator is planning and writing as he lives his textured, sometimes tortured life through a year in New York -- worried about environmental catastrophe, attending art receptions, agonizing over a possible dangerous illness, challenging the control of cash over [...]
