Never have I read a book quite like this before. This man, out of nowhere, conjures up such a whirlwind of imagination, giving feverish life to the everyday. Squares of sunlight dreaming on the floor, such metaphors flood the soul with emotion and poignancy. Be prepared for a nonsensical, but hilarious plot, instead of a novel treat it more as a painting boldly crafted with unexpected strokes.
