Think Marquez...but even more surreal and disjointed. It's hard to really pin down an underlying narrative more specific than "guy has a series of flashbacks to his childhood and deals with the memory of his father." It's not really magic realism, but the prose is best described as hazy and has a dream-like quality to it. If you enjoy the aesthetic qualities of the written word more than stuff that actually makes concrete sense then you'll more than likely love this. I admit, I could've done with more linear clarity, but this is the kind of stuff I seriously dig.
