Product Description
<p>Padgett Powell, author of the acclaimed <em>The Interrogative Mood</em> and “one of the few truly important American writers of our time” (Sam Lipsyte), returns with a hilarious Southern send-up of Samuel Beckett’s classic <em>Waiting for Godot</em>.</p><p>Truly a master of envelope-pushing, post-postmodern American fiction, in a class with Nicholas Baker and Lydia Davis, Powell brilliantly blends the sublime, the trivial, and the oddball in <em>You & Me</em>, as two loquacious gents on a porch discuss all manner of subjects, from the mundane to the spiritual to the downright ridiculous.</p><p>At once outrageously funny and profound, <em>You & Me</em> is yet another brilliant, boundary-bursting masterwork, proving once again that, “there are few writers who understand both the beauty and the absurdity of language as well as Padgett Powell” (Kevin Wilson, author of <em>The Family Fang</em>) and that, “Padgett Powell is one of the best writers in America, and one of the funniest, too” (Ian Frazier).</p><p><em>You & Me: A Novel</em> won the James Tait Black Prize for Fiction.</p>
