A first novel by an award winner in poetry and short fiction, "Zanesville" reads like "Gulliver's Travels" as seen through the eyes of Terry Gilliam.
From the Publisher:
The protagonist in this witty debut novel awakens in a post-apocalyptic, cartoonish, amusement-park Central Park with no memory of himself or how he got there and embarks on a cross-country odyssey in search of love and self. A first novel.The protagonist in this witty debut novel awakens in a post-apocalyptic, cartoonish, amusement-park Central Park with no memory of himself or how he got there and embarks on a cross-country odyssey in search of love and self. A first novel. Original. 20,000 first printing.
Annotation:
In this trippy debut work of speculative fiction, Elijah Clearwater, a generously endowed amnesic with floor-length blond hair and part of a quotation carved into his back, wanders through a near-future America controlled by a private corporation and populated by a variety of colorful characters (including sentient holographic cartoon animals) in search of his memories and his family.
