This book is a real one-off. I couldn't get into it for a long time and then it gradually started to make sense. Think stream-of-consciousness written as a music score or a play with narrative mixed in. Highly original in style, challenging and different from anything I've ever read before. It's certainly weird; whether it's also wonderful is for you to decide.

Don’t worry about us, Cincy. What’s next for you?
What do you mean?
up a roommate for the fall yet?
You’re going back to school in the fall,
I don’t think so.
Next spring?
right?
I swallowed a lump of crab cake and coughed.
I don’t think I’m ever going back.
