Book Review: Billy Moon by Douglas Lain

A Tom Doherty Associates Book, New York, 2013.

This is Doug Lain’s first novel, and he has done a wonderful job of weaving many of the theoretical tendencies of that day and today, some of which he discusses regularly in his podcasts (http://douglaslain.net/diet-soap-podcast/), into a fast-moving, funny, sly story.
