A sort of postmodern, self-referential, self-obsessed novel about a Brooklyn writer living in the time of Hurricane Sandy. It’s better than it sounds! The plot is enough to keep you reading until the meta-plot starts to reveal itself, as the book folds in on itself to tell the story of how it was written.
