The surrealism of Jonathan Lethem's Chronic City, the intelligence of any of DFW's writings, the absurdity of the best of Pynchon - how in the world did this 689 masterpiece slip past the mainstream publishing world? Sergio De La Pava serves up moments of hilarity and heartbreak, gritty crime and boxing (if DFW can do tennis, De La Pava can do boxing!) scenarios, next to moments of the macabre and bizarre. It builds in pace and texture to a nail-biting conclusion by which time we're sucked into the weird vortex of the life of its protagonist, Casi, a character whose philosophical and moral musings will haunt the reader long past the cataclysmic finale.
