From Library Journal:

The city is as cruel for Xman as it was for his literary predecessor Bartleby, but this latter-day anti-hero still seeks the job that will straighten out his life. After numerous fruitless interviews, he finally lands a job that involves fraud: convincing the sick that they are well. But Xman himself lands in the hospital and, from a contact made there, slowly sinks into the world of urban terrorism. As metaphors compound and sentences unwind around the questions of reality and response, Brodsky creates a novel of stunning impact. He uses his "Everyman" to explore and explode the urban world and in doing so explodes the novel form itself, piling up images in a flowing narrative that invades characters to find the story within the story. Contemporary fiction at its most robust; highly recommended. Paul E. Hutchison, English Dept., Pennsylvania State Univ., University Park
