Nicotine

Editorial reviews

Nicotine

Nicotine is an addictive stimulant, and so is “Nicotine,” the new novel by Nell Zink.

“Nicotine” was so addictive it made me want to reach for a cigarette when I was done.

Zink writes with a joyful reck-lessness – the sense that maybe she did write this novel in three weeks – that makes her one of the freshest talents around.
