"...perhaps the best novel ever written from the point of view of a schizophrenic. Toplin's world is filled with hideous monsters and inexplicable events, all manufactured within his own mind, and McDowell's examination of how Toplin manages to interact with his environment despite his delusions is thoroughly fascinating, easily his best single work." - Don D'Ammassa.
