A skewed cross between The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Kobo Abe's Box Man, This Guy simultaneously enacts and dramatizes the blackly humorous, ghostly, and subtly hellish condition of namelessness resulting from the stubborn refusal to own the circumstances of one's own life. It exists most fully in light of the progressive arc of fictional technique stretching from Kafka to Beckett to Blanchot. With a fully integrated structure akin to that of a Klein Bottle, it is the only novel to our knowledge that threads the needle of the third person limited perspective--passing through the invisible between protagonist and narrator--as its central thematic and dramatic device.
