Summary: A father and son trek to the coast in a post-apocalytic world.

Review: I actually didn't know how to rate this, because I have no conceptual framework into which I can put this book. Is it prose or is it poetry? Who are the characters? What has happened? But it was very well-written, like very well-written. He made you feel the storyline even though there really was no story line. In fact, when something did happen, I felt like it was a cop out - like he should have just continued to write about nothing. I would read one of his books about nothing forever.
