They were blue lights, and they moved in total silence. This happened every night for about two weeks, then never again. Around the same time, I was having strange dreams in which I was swimming through a liquid that I could breathe, trying to get to a hatch that, in the dream, I knew contained someone I loved, but that always closed just before I could gain entrance. Taken in combination, these have always felt like novelistic elements to me.(less)

L.I.E. by David Hollander
"The energy of this book is derived from the east and west routes of the Peterbilt cluttered lanes of the human psyche. Coming-of-age on a sandbar couldn't have been easy, so the only way to convey such a nightmare is for the story to come head to hea" Read more of this review »
L.I.E. by David Hollander
"This book was well on its way to 4 stars. I was really enjoying it but got somewhat deflated when it took a sudden and unexpected turn late into it. I didn't get it. Still liked it but am left a little confused."
