Synopses & Reviews
Set in Portland, Oregon, 42 follows George Olson as his life is thrown into chaos and his mind into a possible state of psychosis. On the 42nd day of his 42nd year, George's wife and daughter disappear, his cat and dog run away, and his house burns down. When he is accused of murdering his wife and child, George sets off in search of his family, only to be caught up in a conspiracy of numbers and strange events. The number 42 becomes the meaning of George's life. But does the conspiracy really exist or is it the product of a paranoid mind?
"[A] meandering, infuriating, and ultimately wonderful journey that lands its main character...on strange shores of mind and spirit....Highly recommended for adventurous readers willing to expand the boundaries of genre fiction." Booklist
