Outposts is a perceptive, urbane work alight with beauty and insights that begins in New York. This literary novel is about a young academic commissioned to write the biography of a famous, reclusive author named Nestor Dunn. Barely surviving on unemployment benefits, with a graduate degree that seems useless, the narrator had hoped that the Nestor Dunn project would be his big break. But it takes him to the very brink. Finally, as his subject's life disintegrates around him, the narrator finds his way.
Sean Akerman is a writer of fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. Outposts clearly demonstrates his genuine flair as a novelist for originality and an impressive ability to engage his readers attention from beginning to end. While very highly recommended, especially for community and academic library Contemporary Literary Fiction collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that Outposts is also available in a digital book format.
