My blurb for Brian Evenson’s latest, and the initial description, with cover.
â€œImmobility is a shock to the system. It makes you wonder why you ever read any other noir. The style is brilliant, becoming strangely less concrete the more we find out, as if the words are somehow disintegrating with the character. The inversion by novelâ€™s end, the so-called twist, is perhaps the most perfect and natural Iâ€™ve ever readâ€”so good that no matter how hard you try to figure it out ahead of time, youâ€™ll fail. Immobility confirms Evensonâ€™s ability to colonize your brain much like the best visionaries, from J.G. Ballard on down.â€
