Improbable is Irresistible!

The WSJ (no, not that one -- the Winston-Salem Journal, which happens to be a certain ARLA employee's hometown paper) raved about Adam Fawer's IMPROBABLE:
In case you are a person who reads only the first paragraph of a review, I want to get this out before you turn the page: Improbable is sophisticated fiction at its best. With absolutely no reservations, I assert that this is the most entertaining book I've read in the past five years. And believe me when I tell you - I read a lot of books. I'll even go as far as to say that the entertainment value of Improbable equals the combined value of half the books I've read in that time.
In case you are a person who reads all of a review, we've posted it here.
