Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Padgett Powell's You & Me, mixed with 750 ml of fine bourbon, is the most fun you can have in many states without getting arrested.

--Gary Shteyngart, bestselling author of Absurdistan and Super Sad True Love Story

The novel's penetrating, playful words manage to 'pick impossibly heavy sh*t up' and deliver what one of the characters calls 'the perfect nonsense a real dream makes.'

--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Padgett Powell, author of the acclaimed The Interrogative Mood and one of the few truly important American writers of our time (Sam Lipsyte), returns with a hilarious Southern send-up of Samuel Beckett's classic Waiting for Godot. Truly a master of envelope-pushing, post-postmodern American fiction, in a class with Nicholas Baker and Lydia Davis, Powell brilliantly blends the sublime, the trivial, and the oddball in You & Me, as two loquacious gents on a porch discuss all manner of subjects, from the mundane to the spiritual to the downright ridiculous. At once outrageously funny and profound, You & Me is yet another brilliant, boundary-bursting masterwork, proving once again that, there are few writers who understand both the beauty and the absurdity of language as well as Padgett Powell (Kevin Wilson, author of The Family Fang) and that, Padgett Powell is one of the best writers in America, and one of the funniest, too (Ian Frazier).
