Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town
Protagonist: the outsider who, as Doctorow said in 'Craphound', loves our culture's cast-offs and sees them as poems. The structure, also, is bits and pieces interestingly rearranged. My favorite part: the cast of characters- brothers A through G and his father the mountain, his mother the washing machine. The day I finished reading this, I picked up Gene Wolfe's The Evil Guest..and there one character took another one to a sentient mountain whose wife was 'let's just say a laundress'. Thanks for the plate o' shrimp!
