Waiting on Wednesday: Sept. 7

For the Waiting on Wednesdays blog meme:

"The Revisionists" by Thomas Mullen: Here we have what promises to be a literary time-travel novel, in which a guardian from a perfect future returns to the past to make sure the future stays perfect. In line with "Super Sad True Love Story," "The Leftovers" and "Zone One" (and unlike the relatively optimistic "Visit From the Goon Squad," Mullen seems to be saying that America's future is, well, broken, and that it has to get really broken before it's fixed. I'm looking forward to this title almost as much as "The Art of Fielding."
