Synopsis

David Green's novel furthers the contemporary dialogue between "deconstructionist" philosophy and "post-modern" fiction with an ingenious structure. It's impossible to tell whether a certain authour of "Borgesian" fictions has invonted the critic who writes about him, or an ingenious critic has invented the author about whom he is a leading expert! Grisp critical porse alternates with lush narrative and descriptive rhetoric in this work of genuine inquiry into the relation between two styles of writing, two uses of mind, and two ways of being. Shades of Nabokov's Pale Fire!
