When Pinson Charfo wakes one morning to find a strange note at his bedside from a Mr. Ralfo to a Mr. Cormill, neither of whom he knows, it proves to be the first in a series of odd clues designed specifically for him to follow, embroiling him in a complex mystery featuring plagiarized manifestos, narcotized cultists, the search for pornographic prints, and a busted fountain whose runoff forms an underground lake beneath the never-named city's unsuspecting feet. Tote Hughes's Fountain is a metaphysical detective story unlike any other, a comic tour de force set in a labyrinthine world of shifting signs and dreamlike insolubility.

A summary of the plot would not do it justice. The plot is almost secondary to the atmosphere and feeling the Mr. Hughes conjurs. It is quirky, clever, very funny, very strange, with a dreamlike quality. It is just very well written. Incredble first book from an author to watch. Can't wait to read another story by Tote Hughes.

Bizarrely familiar and unfamiliar all at once; like deja vu and a lucid dream you vaguely recall.
