Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Citizens waiting to enter the country of Inner Horner, a strange land that is only large enough for one resident at a time, fall prey to the tyrannical rule of the ambitious and power-hungry Phil, igniting an outbreak of injustice and mass hysteria, in an unusual novel by the author of Pastoralia. Original.


Review:

"With an absurdist wit as playful as Monty Python's and a vision as dark as Samuel Beckett's, a post-modernist spins a provocative parable of political power and its abuses....For those who appreciate speculative, experimental fiction, a mind-bending work inviting readers to ponder the nature of parable and the possibilities of language."

Kirkus, 07/15/2005

Review:

"As in the novels of Thomas Pynchon...and David Foster Wallace, there is an exhilarating sense of a writer taking on a culture of deranged fictions--purveyed by government interests--by playing it at its own game and out-inventing it."

John Dugdale, Literary Review, July, 2006

Book Description: Riverhead Books, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Riverhead Trade. 180 x 128 mm. Brand New Book. In a profoundly strange country called Inner Horner, large enough for only one resident at a time, citizens waiting to enter the country fall under the rule of the power-hungry and tyrannical Phil, setting off a chain of injustice and mass hysteria.An Animal Farm for the 21st century, this is an incendiary political satire of unprecedented imagination, spiky humor, and cautionary appreciation for the hysteric in everyone. Over six years in the writing, and brilliantly and beautifully packaged, this novella is Saunders first stand-alone, book-length work--and his first book for adults in five years.
