"When Lauren was a small girl, she would stand in the Kansan fields and call the cats. One by one they would come to her through the grass, across which lay the ice of the coming winter; and she could see them in the light of the moon." First edition of award-winning American novelist Steve Erickson’s first book. Compared by critics to the work of Pynchon, DeLillo and David Lynch, Erickson's hypnotic narrative centers on Jason and Lauren, a young couple from Kansas after they move to San Francisco and are suddenly assaulted by a series of bizarre events. A haunting meditation on contemporary life, the sci-fi-adjacent novel was widely noted for its surrealism and for Erickson's attempts to apply cinematic fades and cuts to literature. Dust jacket designed by George Corsillo. First printing with complete number row to copyright page. Light edgewear to unclipped dust jacket. Near fine. Item #6416
