This book is extraordinarily difficult to describe. Usually I just say, "You have to read it." And then people get it. You can't really tell people what it's ABOUT. It's brilliant and maddening and complex and beautiful and suspenseful and one of my favorite books of all time, but I could never do justice to the convoluted nonstory-story or the endless permutations of the initial opening premise of the book.

You just have to read it.
