From the author of "One on One, Memories of Amnesia," and "Brain Surgeon" comes one of the most perverse satires (Jonathan Lethem) written in recent years. Includes bibliographical references and index. The original books is too bright.

One thing you won’t find in this book is an explanation of the way to write a novel. Couple of months later I got out of bed one morning and sat down and wrote a two-page outline of a novel. Because I don’t believe there is one. Just as every novel is unique, so too is every novelist. About a month after that I sat down to the typewriter with my two-page outline at hand and a ream of white bond paper at the ready. I felt a little guilty without a shoebox full of file cards, but like the bumblebee who goes on flying in happy ignorance of the immutable laws of physics, I persisted in my folly and wrote the book in a couple of weeks. Shows what a jerk that other writer was, doesn’t it? Wrong.

Lawrence Shainberg's One on One is a magical book about a 6foot9 metaphysician, son of two Jewish millionaires, and the most involuted Goliath in literature. Baskin hears voices: the irritating chorus of his psychoanalyst, his father, his girlfriend, and the whine of a mother unable to recover from his hatred for string beans. His father's persis tent how are you feeling, Ellie can stop him cold. For his schizy conscience demands he forsake his joyous shot for the agony of feeling for other people. Baskin plays most of this novel one on one, pitted against his head in an attempt to elude the noisy guards who check his every move. Can he lose his mind and find himself?
