The Nix is author Nathan Hill’s widely acclaimed first novel. In a story that travels from the suburbs of Chicago to New York City, and through Norwegian folktales and obsessive video-gaming, Hill tells a story of the fraught relationship between a son and his mother.
The Nix is at times sad, dark, but also politically charged and funny. And, since the main character is a literature professor “at a small university northwest of Chicago,” you’ll be sure to find something in here that rings true and makes you smile.
