Isn't the past just the present, minus the uncertainty?
~ Mike DeCapite, from his terrific new novel Jacket Weather
I love this book & Mike & his voice & his name & the modern-eternal love story his novel's about.
It's not jacket weather in the least, being in the 70s, but it is indeed Jacket Weather if we're talking about Mike DeCapite's terrific book, out at last from Soft Skull. Has any other novelist been able to break your heart at the exact same moment he's making you laugh till you almost throw up?
