Nell Zink has long been tipped as a novelist to watch. At last, here is a teeming magnum opus of life at the end of the last century and the beginning of the next. As the American empire careens towards a final reckoning with the logic of late capitalism, Zink presents the masque of anarchy as seen through the eyes of a couple of indie rock veterans raising their child in downtown Manhattan. Zink's prose has the ability to make you giggle with recognition and then sideswipe you with an insight that belies her years. For anybody who has lived through the time (that is to say, all of us), the book is a touchstone of opportunities met and missed. It's also a reminder that for all the mistakes we might have made, decency is still possible--even if we have to work at it. Like a plane crashing into the World Trade Center, Doxology is impossible to stop and hits the reader where they live. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley
