'Motherless Brooklyn'--A masterpiece--now 1 of my favorite living authors

Motherless Brooklyn is now one of my four favorite books written in my adult lifetime--joining Jesus' Son, Visit from the Goon Squad, and A Manual for Cleaning Women. The writing is extraordinary, and something I aspire to. It's all so vivid, and the details capture little insights about this world and our world every other sentence. Just amazing. Also, the story was thoroughly captivating--quite the page-turner. The characters were really wonderful, too. I have to admit that when he introduced the narrator with Tourette, why first reaction was, "Well that's really interesting, BUT--that's going to get old, really fast." Felt like it might be a gimmick that would wear through quickly.
