Prisoner's Dilemma

Prisoner's Dilemma

Richard Powers

I am amazed by the prose of Richard Powers. He can make me swell with sadness in one moment and double over in laughter the next. This story was rich and entertaining. His style reminds me of Raymond Carver where I am in awe of the quotidian. I’m more interested in the human interaction than the looming world war in the story and he is too. I just can’t get enough of Richard Powers.
