O magazine recommends The Typist by Michael Knight

July 6, 2011 Michael Knight’s transcendent novel The Typist won’t be out in paperback till next month, but O magazine is recommending it for the beach bag nonetheless. In the summer-reading guide, Tiffany Sun praises its “quiet, spare prose,” noting: “With The Typist, Knight paints a picture of military ennui in a city facing desperate economic times, giving us beautifully drawn characters who are at once vulnerable and unknowable as they seek solace, diversion—and eventually, purpose—amid instability.”
