KIRKUS REVIEW

. . .All trapped in their own circumferential evidence as Procel the Geometer has so proven put it in!"" might be a slogan for this exercise in automatic writing, a supposed sequel to Sorrentino's Odd Number (1985). He ""puts in"" references to his obscure old characters, bits of untranslated Latin and Greek, mythic beasts, indecipherable puns, grants of sexual satisfaction, all in a muddy rivulet the publisher claims ""opens the floodgates of fiction."" Stay on higher ground.
