A Zero-Sum Game review

The most recent addition to the complete review is my review of Eduardo Rabasa's A Zero-Sum Game, forthcoming from Deep Vellum. Political fiction -- abstract, rather than based on actual events -- is hard to do, but I think this is the most successful example I've come across since Juan Goytisolo's The Marx Family Saga. Unusual in how the narrative moves -- with three very distinct parts to it -- readers do have to be willing to go along for the whole ride -- but it's definitely worthwhile.
