A Vollmann novel that's less than 600 pages? Say it ain't so!

A focused look at the beauty and ugliness of a deluded man looking for a woman he invented. Sad and disgusting and compelling all at once. Don't read while eating.

Recommended for the kind of people who want to know the 'spirituality of whores' to use Vollmann's own phrase, or the kind of people who collect insects. ( )
