BKLYN BookMatch: Unreliable Narrators and Unsympathetic Characters

A mix of books with unreliable narrators and unsympathetic characters. Simple, sparse, and strong writing, with biting, sardonic, and cynical humor. For fans of Charles Portis, George Saunders' biting humor, Wells Tower, Steven Millhauser, Rivka Galchen, and Donald Antrim. No historical fiction, science fiction, or fiction too focused on romance. This list was created by a librarian with the Brooklyn Public Library for a reader. Would you like your own personalized list of reading suggestions? Visit Bklyn BookMatch here:
