Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyComposed entirely in interrogative sentences, this spoof of boys' adventure books gives the humble question mark a serious workout and taxes readers as well. Gold Fools by experimentalist Gilbert Sorrentino (Mulligan Stew, etc.) charts the adventures of teenage boys Nort and Dick Shannon and Bud Merkel as they traipse through the Gila Desert on a quest for desert gold. Exuberant, inventive and thoroughly maddening, Sorrentino's eccentric work fearlessly tests all kinds of boundaries. ( Apr. 4) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
The most recent novel by the noted American novelist Gilbert Sorrentino.
