Carolyn SeeIf … you believe that at their best, novels should be transformative, should rip the dusty curtains from our everyday vision and reveal the reality of our existence; if you don't mind being terrorized by a narrative if it takes you to a greater understanding of what it means to be alive on this earth; if you're willing to take this ride with Hugh Nissenson, then you're not in for a treat exactly -- that would be the wrong word -- but you'll be looking at a different world when you finish his pages. A last warning: Read it in the daytime if you can. All the special effects of all the Hollywood horror movies disappear into nothing compared with this book.
