A half-serious, half-joking take-off on the traditional development novel, Twiddledum Twaddledum presents the fortunes and misfortunes, the adventures and misadventures of a young man in search of himself in an absurd world where opposites are identical twins but never reconciled. This satiric novel mirrors a schizoid world in which dangers are part actual and part imaginary; where punishment is sought yet fled from; where guilt is accepted at the same time that it is denied; where fiction and reality are interchangeable.
"A brilliant, marvelous novel. Mystifying and haunting, the book, like all great art, creates a world." --The Nation
"[A] collection of related stories . . . notable for their spare, stripped style, and pungent understatement . . . raw, inventive stuff." --Library Journal
