In this daring debut novel following in the hallowed footsteps of Black Sparrow titans Charles Bukowski and Lucia Berlin, Rachel Nagelberg, a true literary pioneer, explores the frail line between the human impulse to control everything and the futility of excessive effort to do so. When Nagelberg's protagonist, Sheila, heeds a mysterious urge to return to her family home in Berkeley, CA, she arrives at the exact moment of her mother's suicide. Faced with her own self destructive tendencies, Sheila copes by filming 24/7 while workers deconstruct the site of the suicide, her childhood home. She begins experiencing more and more frequent blackouts, finds herself hunting a robot drone through the San Francisco MoMA with a baseball bat, and resumes a violent affair with her college professor. Combining the emotional depth of Eileen Myles with a plot worthy of a David Lynch film, this readable, literary, and thought-provoking work is for anyone who questions the status quo.
