Book of the Day

Empty the Sun by Joseph Mattson w/soundtrack by Six Organs of Admittance

Joseph Mattson writes like a guitar player with nineteen fingers--everywhere at once, stinging, dark and beautiful. EMPTY THE SUN will take you to some strange places, but the trip is amazing. Mattson has written a truly inventive and vivid novel. ---- Jerry Stahl

Several passages induced the shiver of aesthetic blissin my spine that Nabokov famously described as the indicator of good and true writing. The whole thing is by turns hilarioius and hilariously sad, artfully pin-holed with melancholy (my favorite drink)...
---- James Greer
