Certainly it's a challenge to write a book that takes place in one setting alone. I got a little bored in there.
Premise is compelling - guy gets arrested and thrown into a mental hospital even though it seems everyone, himself, cops, doctors, knows he's not sick.The main conflict flatlines - man/beast patient terrorizes other patients.
Yes, very much so. It's an interesting story how he drew his characters, which LaValle speaks to in his acknowledgments and also talked about to Terry Gross on NPR.
