Will McGrath's review
Dec 01, 2019
One of the most delightfully absurd books I've read. The whole novel spans one lunch hour, much of that occupying a single escalator ride. There is no plot. There are pages and pages on how to tie shoelaces, and why shoelaces might break, and the physics involved in shoelace breakage. There is literally - and I can't stress this enough - no plot. This is navel-gazing taken so far into the hilarious extreme that it becomes something else entirely, which is maybe a profound philosophical treatise on paying attention. Or it might just be about shoelaces.
