This is a tightly wound mousetrap of a story that plays out like a Hitchcockian fever dream. It follows comically foibled Lise, an unraveling heroine on a bewildering mission of self destruction. The author had me fooled up until the final pages where everything snapped into place. Genius.
Driven mad by an office job, Lise flies south on holiday -- in search of passionate adventure and sex. In this metaphysical shocker, infinity and eternity attend Lise's last terrible day in the unnamed southern city that is her final destination.
