About this item

Fiction. Faced by hospitalizations, therapies and rehabilitations, the characters in FLAMINGOS are in a permanent state of psychological mutation. In exchange for melancholy reminiscences about their mundane existence, false messiah Simon holds out a promise of release from the drudgeries and depressions of Middle America.

Grant Maierhofer's polyphonic voice formally recalls such Modernist masterpieces as Virginia Woolf's The Waves. Nonetheless, this book is wholly his own, a brilliant, idiosyncratic exploration of the fragmented twenty-first-century mind.

"A New Novel in an era where there can almost no longer be a novel at all, but information."—Blake Butler

"Part Beckett, part Unabomber manifesto, part Laurie Weeks, Grant Maierhofer's FLAMINGOS is singularly alive and wild."—Maggie Nelson

"Elliptical, surgical, Flamingos is also grim, smart, funny and syntactically menacing..."—Sam Lipsyte
