Oh God, The Sun Goes

The sun has disappeared from the sky. No one can explain where it has gone, but one wayward traveler is determined to try. As our unnamed narrator begins his odyssey across the parched landscapes of the American Southwest, he is drawn into a web of illusion and mystery, a shifting astral mindscape that shimmers with the aftermath of loss—and the promise of redemption.

Oh God, the Sun Goes is a hallucinatory and deadpan picaresque that suddenly swerves into a love story of soaring poignance. Truly “the stuff that dreams are made of” – or maybe nightmares?

Apocalyptic, mesmerizing, and utterly unique, Oh God, the Sun Goes introduces readers to a young and keenly inventive mind.

”An indescribable marvel … A writer who will seemingly follow his intuitions anywhere, with blazing results.” —Jonathan Lethem, author of The Fortress of Solitude

”Oh God, the Sun Goes is what might happen if Raymond Carver and Martin Heidegger were spliced together, given a double PhD in neurology and heartbreak, and decided to write a book that was at once highly symbolic and resonantly human.  A highly original and engagingly odd book.” —Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World
