"A beautiful and utterly original novel about making art, love, and children during the twilight of an empire Ben Lerner's first novel, Leaving the Atocha Station, was hailed as "one of the truest (and funniest) novels. of his generation" (Lorin Stein, The New York Review of Books), "a work so luminously original in style and form as to seem like a premonition, a comet from the future" (Geoff Dyer, The Observer). Now, his second novel departs from Leaving the Atocha Station's exquisite ironies in order to explore new territories of thought and feeling. In the last year, the narrator of 10:04 has enjoyed unexpected literary success, has been diagnosed with a potentially fatal heart condition, and has been asked by his best friend to help her conceive a child, despite his dating a rising star in the visual arts. In a New York of increasingly frequent super storms and political unrest, he must reckon with his biological mortality, the possibility of a literary afterlife, and the prospect of (unconventional) fatherhood in a city that might soon be under water. In prose that Jonathan Franzen has called "hilarious. cracklingly intelligent. and original in every sentence," Lerner captures what it's like to be alive now, when the difficulty of imagining a future has changed our relation to our present and our past. Exploring sex, friendship, medicine, memory, art, and politics, 10:04 is both a riveting work of fiction and a brilliant examination of the role fiction plays in our lives"--… (més)

Ben Lerner, the New York-based poet and author, fictionalizes experiences from his own life in this novel about "Ben," a New York-based poet and author, who is fictionalizing experiences from his own life to write a novel about a New York-based poet and author. What is true and what is fabricated, what is art and its purpose, what is actual past and what is possible future, all swirling against the exhausted background of late capitalism and the climate crisis.

Ho letto questo libro perché, insieme con "Gli anni" di Annie Ernaux e "L'arte di collezionare mosche" di Sjöberg, l'ho visto citato come esempio di testo indicativo della direzione che sta prendendo il romanzo contemporaneo. È sicuramente il più debole dei tre a mio avviso, nonostante una traduzione ottima la quale però non riscatta l'idea di partenza, che è quella di scrivere una sorta di autobiografia romanzata che sconfina nel metaromanzo: si racconta infatti la storia della scrittura stessa del libro. Lo si fa attraverso cinque capitoli quasi slegati tra di loro, o comunque flebilmente connessi, che raccontano la vita e gli ambienti di un intellettuale americano contemporaneo. Alcuni episodi sono anche divertenti o interessanti se presi a sé, ma il tutto veramente non può definirsi romanzo, a meno che la direzione intrapresa non sia quella della dissoluzione del genere. Ciò che manca (a differenza dei due esempi precedenti) è un conflitto, un motore della storia. A me è parso soprattutto un accostamento di aneddoti personali, probabilmente mescolati con elementi inventati. Nel complesso si può leggere, ma non è il capolavoro raccontato in quarta di copertina.

Recommended to me by my college undergrad son, 10:04 is a kind of fiction that's outside of my usual wheelhouse, and, according to the author, not even entirely fiction. Lerner's story is really pretty interesting, though, written in an unconventional style and scattered effectively with photos and other illustrations that complement his ruminations on this strange time to be alive. I think Lerner's editor should have reined in his excessive fondness for the word proprioception, but otherwise, I'm intrigued, and eager to read more by this author. ( )

Life’s too short to figure out books like Lerner’s. It’s not hard to read. It’s not actually anything except an attempt by a man to show us he understands the word proprioception. A single usage in a novel would be remarkable. Lerner uses it on average every 50 pages. Literally.

There are bits which Bret Easton Ellis could do perfectly which Lerner tries to imitate and fails badly at.

None of it is original. None of it is unique. None of it is worth reading except this midly amusing quote that Lerner probably overheard on the subway:

“Shaving is a way to start your workday by ritually not cutting your throat while you have the chance.”

Books like 10:04 make you realise that you still have that opportunity open to you. ( )

I liked this more than I thought I would. It is, in fact, a very writerly book about a book (jo hand motion) but its digressions are usually entertaining and funny and poignant. At worst they're fine. Four stars instead of five bc it is occasionally the thing it hates, and all the meta-narrative in the world can't save it from that. ( )
