Description
(Finalist for the 2006 National Book Award ) This novel by the author of The Familiar, Volume 1; The Fifty Year Sword; and House of Leaves takes that book's experimental typography and storytelling to a new level. Sam and Hailey, perpetually 16, perpetually in love, race across the country and two centuries of American history in an ever-changing variety of automobiles, each of them telling the story in parallel in two riffing, lyrical, fragmented streams of language, limited to 180 words per page. Using colored text and interleaved, alternating page layouts, Mark Z. Danielewski has the lovers' tales unfold simultaneously—one starts from one side of the two-fronted book, the other starts from the opposite side, until their stories meet and pass each other at page 180. In sidebars, American history follows the lovers' progress in parallel, from the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation to the Kennedy assassination of 1963, and to the unknown future of 2063.

"A pastiche of Joyce and Beckett, with heapings of Derrida's Glas and Thomas Pynchon's The Crying of Lot 49 thrown in for good measure, Danielewski's follow-up to House of Leaves is a similarly dizzying tour of the modernist and postmodernist heights—and a similarly impressive tour de force.... The book's design is a marvel, and as a feat of Pynchonesque puzzlebookdom, it's magnificent."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
