Autorenporträt
Nathan Hill was born in Iowa in 1975 and lives with his wife in Naples, Florida. The Nix is his first novel.
Rezensionen
If any novel defied an elevator pitch in 2016, it was The Nix. Acid critique of millennial entitlement, videogame addiction, and clueless academia; tender meditation on childhood friendship, first loves, and maternal abandonment; handy tutorial on 60s radicalism and Norwegian ghost mythology: Nathan Hill s magnificently overstuffed debut contains multitudes, and then some. . . . the story surges, ricocheting from sleepy 80s suburbia and the 1968 DNC riots to WWII-era Norway, post-9/11 Iraq, and beyond. It s not just that Hill is a brilliantly surreal social satirist in the gonzo mode of Don DeLillo or Thomas Pynchon (a male news anchor s face is smooth as cake fondant ; one doomed union is like a spoon married to a garbage disposal ), it s that he does it all with so much wit and style and heart. Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly (Best Book of 2016)

A fantastic novel about love, betrayal, politics and pop culture as good as the best Michael Chabon or Jonathan Franzen. People

It broke my heart, this book. Time after time. It made me laugh just as often. I loved it on the first page as powerfully as I did on the last. Jason Sheehan, NPR.org

Funny, endlessly inventive. . . . [a] wild tragicomic tangle of [Hill s] imagination. Entertainment Weekly (A-)

Hill has so much talent to burn that he can pull of just about any style, imagine himself into any person and convincingly portray any place or time. The Nix is hugely entertaining and unfailingly smart, and the author seems incapable of writing a pedestrian sentence or spinning a boring story. . . . [A] supersize and audacious novel of American misadventure. Teddy Wayne, The New York Times Book Review

Irresistible. . . . A major new comic novelist . . . . Hill is a sharp social observer, hyper-alert to the absurdities of modern life. . . . his enormous book arrives as one of the stars of the fall season. . . . readers will find this novel. And they ll be dazzled. Ron Charles, The Washington Post

Hill is an uncommonly profound observer, illuminating much about the relationships between parents and children. . . . Nathan Hill is an important new writer, able to variously make readers laugh out loud while providing a melancholy, resonant tale. Eliot Schrefer, USA Today (4/4 Stars)

"[A] great sprawling feast of a first novel. . . . Hill writes with an astonishingly sure hand for a young author. . . . let's just call him the real thing." Dan Cryer, Newsday
