Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A novel about the confrontation of youth's crisp idealism with reality-the reality that life is not so easily understood or tamed, and that, despite our best efforts, we are all inevitably subject to the slow slide into entropy.

Aaron Rosclatt is lost. And this is strange, because life has always been sequential and linear for him. Or at least he thought it was; these days, he's not even so sure about that anymore. Is Aaron Rosclatt going crazy? Crazy does seem to run in the Rosclatt family. Maybe that's why the pieces in Aaron's life seem to be moving around so randomly without him, breaking up and resettling. There are few options left for Aaron other than to simply try to navigate through this storm of looming incoherency. He continues to push through university, his shallow relationships, his class battles with aristocratic roommates, soul-crushing call centre jobs, inadequacy, and all the disadvantages of a family background he never even thought were a problem before.
