Description

A family of three: father, mother, son. A house that gives them shelter but shapes their nightmares.An illness that nearly arrested the past, and looms over the future.A second family--a copy family. Mirror bodies.Events on the horizon: a hole, a box, a light, a girl. Holes in houses. Holes in speaking. Holes in flesh.Memories that deceive and figures that tempt and lure and withdraw.There Is No Year is the astonishing new novel by Blake Butler. It is a world of scare, a portrait of return, a fable of survival and the fierce burden of art.

Review quote

"If there's a more thoroughly brilliant and exciting new writer than Blake Butler, . . . well, there just isn't. I've literally lost sleep imagining the fallout when There Is No Year drops and American fiction shifts its axis."--Dennis Cooper
