Nog is about a man riding through American Space, space that is vast and choked and silent, space that one fills with obsessive monologues, disintegrating memories, hoped-for horizons, buried myths, paranoid plans. Nog rides through this space because that is what we do, that is the great and original promise, the central fact. He tries to define it, to embrace it, to settle it, to get through it, to be a witness to it. The road is brutal and energetic and frantic and sometimes funny, and certainly insanely fast. "A strange, singular book . . . somewhere between Psychedelic Superman and Samuel Beckett . . . full of classic, post-existential nausea. Despite (because of) the silence, the immobility, the slippery but thoroughly suffused sensuality, the book is an accomplishment." ?Newsweek "The most original, exciting, and talented new novel since Thomas Pynchon's V." ?
