Synopsis

Things aren't going Milo's way. His acting career is floundering, he got dumped, his miserable father vanished, and people keep moving into his house. He finally decides to take action — to help the only person he really likes, the autistic boy next door who's being bullied. But, well, that doesn't really go his way either.

As usual with Strube, the complicated plot is nicely constructed, effectively managing a number of crosscutting storylines.

Milosz is a novel as plotless as its protagonist’s life, and lacks the vividness of Lemon, but is held together by powerful undercurrents.
