Hell, we don’t even now who Evan Dara is. Apparently, he is a male American in his 30s living in Paris. And that’s it, except for the fact that Evan Dara is not his real name. He might be Richard Powers. But he might not. His book – his first book (at least first book under the name of Evan Dara) – won the Fiction Collective 2 fiction prize (judged, natch, by William Vollmann) but was published to no acclaim whatsoever but has since acquired a fair amount of cult status and has been compared to the likes of Don deLillo, David Foster Wallace and the aforementioned William Vollmann. Who is he? Who cares. Read the book.
