400 pages of stream of consciousness cartoon monologues (that have a tendency to lapse into obliquely Socratic dialogues every now and then). This work, while challenging its readers to think while they read, is not without a sense of humor -- bleak though it may be. It's definitely a tough sell, unless, of course, you're already sold. Adherents to reader receptivity theory, in which the reader is, at least, an equal partner with the writer in forging a work's meaning, significance and value, will celebrate this release as these monologues are really more appropriately considered dialogues with the reader. So, put on your inter-comics receivo-trans and start cracking that code.
