"Going is a brilliant novela deft, contemplative thriller that probes five lives united by art, chance, and exile. The story’s great themes are erotic, artistic integrity, and death. Its genders are crossed or at war, its night streets and romances equally treacherous, its wit delightfully dark. Yet the engagements with art are profound. And the climaxa stunneris suffused with justice and light." David Jame Duncan, author The River Why and The Brothers K
This novel, at times somber and at times flaring with intensity, calls up indelibly the difficulties of making a good life-or a good death-in a world in which we are all, in one way or another, going.
