Kudos by Rachel Cusk (published by Faber & Faber) is this week's Book of the Week at VOLUME. 
By narrating the stories of others as told to her, Cusk's anti-protagonist Faye embodies the struggle for ownership and identity at the core of all fiction. This book causes tectonic shifts in the reader's preconceptions. 

>> Read Thomas's review

>> Choose your own Rachel Cusk

>> "Perhaps the cruellest novelist at work today."

>> "Some people do not like Rachel Cusk." 

>> "Negative literature."

>> Cusk's Outline and Transit form a sort of 'Faye' trilogy with Kudos. It is not necessary, however, to read them all or in order.
