Loop's End concludes the moving and often hilarious saga of the eccentric Loop family. It's a larger-than-life novel about American dreams and nightmares that brilliantly invokes the magic realism of Gabriel Garcia MÃ¡rquez, the absurdist dialogue of Joseph Heller, and the time-warped narratives of John Barth. In the final book of the trilogy, the philosophizing garbageman Jarvis Loop is now a recently widowed father of a young son, Visitor--who calls everyone "dad," even the dog. Jarvis envisions a future where "Garbage will fuel intergalactic travel. Garbagemen will feed the stars." The search for answers to some of the universe's more formidable mysteries is an elliptical one. Jarvis remains a hopeful, if hapless traveler, haunted by his wife's ghost, chronic insomnia and dark secrets from his family's past.About the Author:
