Product description


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


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.
