Summary
A "demented and deeply enjoyable" tale of a father journeying into a strange world to save his son (Los Angeles Times). In this fantastic tale that "blends the out-there mysticism of H. P. Lovecraft, the dark corridors and femme fatales of Dashiell Hammett, and the pulpy, lurid qualities of '50s comic books," a man named Sweeney, hoping for a miracle for his comatose son, Danny, journeys to the fortress-like Peck Clinic (Minneapolis Star-Tribune). The doctors there claim to have "resurrected" patients who were similarly lost in the void—but the real cure for his son's condition may lie in Limbo, a comic book world beloved by Danny. Nominated for a Shirley Jackson Award, this spellbinding novel about stories and what they can do for—and to—those who create and consume them is "a wild, surreal and thought-provoking ride" that explores the power of the unknown, the need for forgiveness, and the nature of consciousness itself (San Francisco Chronicle). "A genre-busting novel . . . Strange, gripping, [and] possessed of a whole lot of vision." —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "To call Jack O'Connell's novels imaginative, or even original, doesn't begin to say it." —The New York Times Book Review
