“There are professional thrills and there are professional thrills, but I am extra especially thrilled to report that FSG is going to be publishing John Darnielle’s novel, Wolf in White Van, this fall. John is famous for his work with the Mountain Goats, and I suspect that none of the many fans who know his lyrics and have heard his stories will be surprised by the revelation that his is a genuinely literary mind. And it’s true—Wolf in White Van emphatically proves that his imagination and voice are at least as at home on the page as they are in song.
There are many things worth singling out for praise in Wolf in White Van:the unforgettable main character, Sean Phillips, who has been isolated by a disfiguring injury since age seventeen; Trace Italian, the intricate game within the novel that Sean created and runs; the interplay of real and imagined worlds, which is both complex and heartbreaking; the structure of the storytelling—audacious, brilliant, and never anything but convincing and unreasonably suspenseful; the prose itself, which is precise and beautiful and (forgive me) lyrical.”

so here is a thing that is happening in my life that I am really incredibly excited about
I can say from SECRET, PERSONAL EXPERIENCE that this novel is utterly magnificent.
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that John D can write good like crazy good. But somehow I was still surprised, and moved, and amazed page after page after page.
I am talking about audible gasp type stuff, and also deeper, interior gasps of reflection and astonishment and gratitude.
Also, that book jacket is incredible, even thought I solved the maze in like, nine seconds, because of my powers.
But otherwise, this story is a hard and beautiful human puzzle that will be a pleasure to solve and resolve over many readings. And you can quote me on that. Every day.
That is all.

Would really appreciate some words of wisdom. I know you all are awesome and have good taste.
Any recommendations from you fine folks?
