This book defies the gravity of imagination,
This review is from: The American Book of the Dead (Kindle Edition)
The American Book of The Dead is as clever as its title. Filled with horrifying real moments of parenthood, love and marriage and American politics, this view of a dystopian USA sometime in the not too distant future is wholly believable, even when it is not: The play on the folds of reality and time is not unlike Philip K Dick's world, something like Valis. Henry Baum is a new important modern American classic author and I am sure in a little while people will be hailing his books as such everywhere in the universe. I should say screenplays will be bought, as I saw the whole thing as a film from start to finish.
