You & I

    By

    'When asked for a list of the best young American writers, I invariably put Padgett Powell at the top' Saul Bellow This book is a conversation, apparently on a porch, between two men who may be difficult to grasp. They move together in aimless convenient debate, coming to conclusions that don't conclude but to positions that may not be finally so aimless. They disagree to agree. They are smart, not smart; fools, not fools. Poignant, hilarious, opaque, diamond-clear, this strange little gem is sure to delight the thousands of devotees found by Powell's The Interrogative Mood. 'When we first came across Padgett Powell's remarkable writing it blew our minds completely' Dazed & Confused
