Annotation:
Mark Z. Danielewski, famous for his labyrinthine HOUSE OF LEAVES, takes the formal elements of fiction to dizzying new heights in ONLY REVOLUTIONS. The novel reads in both directions, with two narrators telling the story in free verse--the reader must flip the book, turn it upside down, and read from both ends. It's a wild, somewhat annoying, conceit, but the overall effect of the converging stories is fiendishly fun. Sam and Hailey, the teenage protagonists, embark on a cross-country (and cross-time) journey filled with crime and outlandish characters. Danielewski's super postmodern allegorical romp through America is so all-encompassing and expansive in nature that it resembles a crash course between HOUSE OF LEAVES and LEAVES OF GRASS--a true ode to the depths and reaches of American life.

Praise

"The daunting maze explored in [Mark Z.] Danielewski's Borgesian first novel HOUSE OF LEAVES (2000), only hinted at the depths to be plumbed in its intimidating innovative successor...You have to work at it, but it's a trip well worth taking." [Starred review.] 07/15/2006
