Ben Lerner is a brilliant novelist, and one unafraid to make of the novel something truly new. 10:04 is a work of endless wit, pleasure, relevance, and vitality. --Rachel Kushner, author of The FlamethrowersLeaving the Atocha Station was hailed asMoreĀ  Ben Lerner is a brilliant novelist, and one unafraid to make of the novel something truly new. 10:04 is a work of endless wit, pleasure, relevance, and vitality. --Rachel Kushner, author of The FlamethrowersLeaving the Atocha Station was hailed as one of the truest (and funniest) novels...of his generation (Lorin Stein, 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 Lerners second novel departs from Atochas 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 its like to be alive now, when the difficulty of imagining a future has changed our relation to both 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.
