It started as a short story a few yeas ago and slowly expanded. Now it's 95K words and tickles my ear at night when I try to sleep. (less)

Read this one off of a suggestion from some knucklehead who told me it was "hilarious."
Friends, it is not hilarious.
It is, hands down, one of the most abysmally dark, claustrophobic, and unrelenting novels about undiagnosed depression that I have ev

“Marvin, you're here now," Vale said. He stood up, his knees popping. "The food sucks. They have severed animal heads in the bar. I don't know if you know that." His cigarette sparked against the gravel and he ratcheted open my walker in front of me. "But you're among friends, okay, and you're still walking upright and taking solids. You're winning. Anything beyond that is thinking too far ahead”
