If Nicholson Baker wrote The Crying of Lot 49 it might read something like The History of America in My Lifetime. Mind-bending, suspenseful, and extremely funny—I found this novel the perfect balance of intellectual challenge and pure pleasure.
Jac Jemc, author of False Bingo and The Grip of It
The History of America in My Lifetime slips into the neural network of your brain and declines extraction—an amazing and unforgettable novel.

Us, and The One-Hour MFA
