Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Brock Clarke is acclaimed for his wry, absurdist humor. In Exley, Clarke introduces nine-year-old Miller, who becomes convinced that his father—who left without explanation—must have run away to join the military, and is now lying comatose in a VA hospital. Thinking a visit from his father’s favorite writer will help revive him, Miller decides to track down "A Fan’s Notes" author Frederick Exley.

Yuck!

What would have made Exley better?

If there was anything that held any meaning. Unless this is the authors own life experience, I didn't see any reason for this story other than anger

Would you ever listen to anything by Brock Clarke again?

No

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I liked the boy. I felt bad for him. I don't think this story could take place anywhere. The characters were wildly unrealistic and nuts. If it was science fiction that might have redeemed it slightly

Any additional comments?

It left me feeling disturbed, frustrated and sad
