Publisher's Summary

"An epic wonder"* from the best-selling author of Mosquitoland

This is Noah Oakman → 16, Bowie believer, concise historian, disillusioned swimmer, son, brother, friend.

Then Noah → gets hypnotized.

Now Noah → sees changes - inexplicable scars, odd behaviors, rewritten histories - in all those around him. All except his Strange Fascinations....

A stunning surrealist portrait, The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik is a story about all the ways we hurt our friends without knowing it - and all the ways they stick around to save us.

*Adam Silvera, best-selling author of More Happy Than Not and They Both Die at the End

Critic Reviews

"As he did in his fantastic debut Mosquitoland, David Arnold again shows a knack for getting into the mind of an eccentric teenager in clever, poignant fashion... An artfully crafted tale about a boy finding his groove amid the cacophony of adolescence." (USA Today)

"An unpredictable, Vonnegut-esque examination of identity, friendship, and forgiveness... Unique and surprisingly poignant." (Chicago Tribune)

"Shivery and vaguely psychedelic... This is the kind of book that will appeal strongly to teenagers like Noah who are just starting to think about what they want from their futures, but it’s also immensely enjoyable to read as an adult. It’s a funny, eerie, beautifully textured book, a strange fascination in and of itself." (Vox)
