They can't be plugged in, they've got no buttons or knobs, and they don't make your eyes pop out of your head as you watch creatures or asteroids zigzag across a screen. Usually, novels have no visual aids at all. So if you want to know what Anna Karenina looks like, well, you just have to read the book.<p>But Marisha Pessl's <em>Night Film</em> is eager to bust out of that old-fashioned, "he had blue eyes and she fell to her death" kind of storytelling.
