Percival Everett by Virgil Russell
[A] stark, shattering novel… This meta-fiction is deeply moving.
The Wall Street Journal
[Percival Everett is] so humanely adept at getting to the heart of the human condition. . . . Everett has created much more than an exercise in unreliable narration, an exploration of the nature of language and the rationales we create to keep ourselves going as we grow old. By the conclusion, every sentence, indeed every word, has come to seem like a valuable key, not just to this puzzle of a novel, but to the meaning of existence.
A potent and thoughtful exploration of the bonds between fathers and children.
