Critically acclaimed on its hardcover publication, and praised for its playful inventiveness and delightful prose, Deb Olin Unferth''s debut novel, "Vacation," features three characters--a man, his wife, and a stranger with ties to them both. With his wife suspiciously absent in the evenings, the man, Myers, follows his unnamed spouse on her evening escapades and soon realizes that she is following the stranger, Gray, a former classmate of Myers whose own marriage has fallen apart. What follows is an unusual, unsettling, and wildly entertaining novel unlike any you''ve read in a long time. With deadpan humor and skewed wordplay, Deb Olin Unferth weaves a mystery of hope and heartbreak.
Annotation:
In Deb Olin Unferth's dreamy and surreal VACATION, a man named Myers with a dented skull follows his wife through the streets of New York as she obsessively follows a man named Gray. After his marriage falls apart, Myers becomes determined to track Gray down, to see if he can shed some light on the death of his marriage. A quixotic tale, full of ingenious strangeness, absurdist comedy, and a deep vein of bittersweet emotional truth, VACATION perfectly captures the obsessive nature of the romantic.
