If you've ever wondered what It all means, why Art and History are a series of failures, why New York City is hell and heaven on Earth—have I got the book for you! Lovable everyman György Korin finds a manuscript in '90s Hungary that purports to explain the secret history of our world, and does what anyone would do: travel to NYC to upload the manuscript and commit suicide promptly thereafter. Short single-sentence chapters orbit madness, lucidity, the slapstick and the cosmic for anepiphanic, vertigo-inducing experience. This is my favorite novel of all time.
