Product description

Review

Utterly intriguing (Hannah Marriott Grazia 2011-11-08)

Powell continues to rebel against convention... displaying a benevolent misanthropy and a juvenile silliness ...Powell holds a mirror up to what we have become and what we have lost, giving voice to a yearning that avoids sentimentality (Metro)

Much like its predecessor, You & I is that most radical of rare beasts: a dazzlingly brilliant, thoroughly readable, properly avant-garde novel (Stuart Hammond Dazed & Confused)

This book is a rare thing: experimental writing with powerful narrative drive. I finished it feeling quieted - by its melancholic probing - and exhilarated by its comic style. (John Jeremiah Sullivan, author of Pulphead)

With typical swaggering genius and ribald wit, Padgett Powell in You & I delivers two loquacious, Godot-style philosophers who swap lies and pontificate on sex and liquor while offering perspicacious insights into the absurdity of human nature. (Vanity Fair 2012-07-01)

Braver, tougher, smarter than most of the fiction supposedly pushing the envelope. Why? Because it actually means something. (Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story)

Book Description

*WINNER OF THE JAMES TAIT BLACK AWARD*

Described as 'Waiting for Godot on acid', this radiant and enigmatic novel will take you on a journey into the subconscious. Confounding, experimental fiction for everyone who loved The Interrogative Mood.
