Re: “An Indiana of the mind in Haven Kimmel's new novel

Adam, with no absolutely no disrespect, and being mindful of how pernicious an impulse to respond to one's critics, I must point out that you missed at least 700 clues as to what that novel is about. I would blame myself, but PW got it, Library Journal got it, Booklist got it, even Marie Claire (!) got it. You either read too fast or without sufficient closeness. If you think 'madness' is the issue, then you missed a lesson in an unreliable narrator, the unperceived passage of time, transglobal epileptic anemia, and the larger themes of abduction. The fact that you would suggest that Trace is the sanest person at an academic party when she encounters two people from the Underworld -- two people who don't exist, in other words -- leads me to believe that maybe this book should have been assigned to someone else. Again, I suggest that humbly, and with a full awareness that perhaps the mistake is mine and not yours. But as it stands, the misreading is yours, not anyone else's. Haven Kimmel
