Chris Adrian





evanc88
Chris Adrian is a relatively new author. He explores the genres of magic realism and fantasy, perhaps, while still remaining HIGHLY literary in his writing.

His two books are:

Gob's Grief (2001)
The Children's Hospital (2006)

Gob's Grief is the story of a twin who is killed in the Civil War, and his brother who is so obsessed with building a machine to bring him back to life--as well as all the dead. To abolish death. Amazing, amazing, amazing book.

His second novel, The Children's Hospital, is published by McSweeney's, which is the publishing house founded by Dave Eggers (check him out too!). At the end of the world, the earth is buried under seven miles of water except a children's hospital with everyone still alive inside, knowing that everyone else in the world is dead.

You can see, just from the small concepts, that his story concepts are ridiculously ambitious, and he pulls it off so modestly. He's great.
