Involves people and drinking and people looking for a giant eye It is among the best things Mr Lethem has written. A very uirky little read I found off of McSweeney's This Shape We're In is short enough to finish in a single serving and strangely gripping forcing a familiar irritating sense of small town normality into a setting made primarily out of entrails and cruddy light fixtures Dialogue is clipped and intelligent and moves the story along at a brisk pace Vital life uestions sex death obsolescence human dignity etc are acknowledged pushed around some maybe given a handshake and left unsettled but hey we've already figured all those issues out for ourselves back in high school anyway Full of nostalgia and something kind of resembling hope there are absolutely worse ways to spend an evening If you see a copy lying around go for it
