Publisher's Summary

A man is severely injured in a mysterious accident, receives an outrageous sum in legal compensation, and has no idea what to do with it. Then, one night, an ordinary sight sets off a series of bizarre visions he can’t quite place. How he goes about bringing his visions to life---and what happens afterward---makes for one of the most riveting, complex, and unusual novels in recent memory.

Critic Reviews

"McCarthy's evocation of the narrator's absorption in his fantasy world as it cascades out of control is brilliant." (Publishers Weekly)

Excellent Novel

What about James Langton’s performance did you like?

I thought the reading of this novel was a perfect match for the mundane nuances this book was repeatedly describing and culminating in the unsuspected climax.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The twist in this novel was unexpected and a surprise.

There several hours I'll never get back.

What a waste of time. I have tried to get through the whole thing but couldn't, so there is a possibility that I have missed some great wisdom being revealed at the end. My loss. Lol
