With the literary inventiveness of Paul Auster and the dark absurdity of Kafka, Laird Hunt's impressive debut is a smart, funny noir that is as fittingly spare as a bare ceiling light. Deadpan delivery and a sly eye for detail characterize The Impossibly's anonymous narrator, and when the nameless operative botches an assignment for the clandestine organization that employs him, everyone in his life-including his girlfriend-is revealed to be either true-blue, double operative, or both.

The narrator's final chilling assignment-to identify his own assassin-masterfully dismantles the reader's own analysis of the evidence. This is a fresh, daring love story set in a world of crime and deep confusion, told by an unreliable and not-unhumorous individual, who is more interested in love than in crime and is clearly ill-equipped for both.
