»How can a book like Faletti’s use a mixture of the shopworn and the nonsensical to achieve what it admittedly does? That’s an interesting and complicated question, but I’d rather ask a different one: Why is it still considered a mistake to ask popular thrillers to achieve these effects with language readers would want to savor, with words that are more than just building blocks for the plot? It’s a truism that genre boundaries are collapsing.«
