Incendiary

Incendiary

by Chris Cleave

Judy Stanton: After reading Little Bee, I was motivated to check out Chris Cleave's debut novel, Incendiary. Set in London, the book centers on a distraught woman whose husband and 4-year-old son were among the hundreds killed when suicide bombers attacked a stadium during a soccer match. The writing is Faulknereske....sentences ramble on...as does the bizarre story of panic, fear, betrayal, and strange relationships. To me, the writing mirrors the lead character, whose life has fallen apart with such a horrific loss. The story is formatted as a letter to Osama, who she's trying to make understand her sadness and rage.
