This book is executed with such craft and love that I wanted to take two days off of work and devour it, lick by lick, down to its quintessence. Life required more time, and that may have led to a closer reading. The book is a tour among literary styles: from modernist realism through thriller and touching on drug-addled memoir and more, each transition and part executed with aplomb. This is a book especially crafted for those who love art, language, contemplation. A book to get lost in. For anyone who has ever snapped “I’m reading!” at a loved one.
