Funny, disturbing dystopia, May 17 2010
Consuming and frightening and lingering. I read an advance copy a couple months ago and I still think about it like it's a transparent sheet laid down over my world. Brutal, funny, and scary. I laughed out loud at least a dozen times reading it, and winced a dozen more. For a crossroads comparison, I say Denis Johnson stomping Chuck Palahniuk into William Gibson while Kurt Vonnegut cheers him on. You have to read it.
