If you take the movie "The Brothers Bloom" and stir it together with the book "House of Leaves", then stick it in a blender with a set of deformed Russian nesting dolls, then put it under your pillow and dream it, you might come up with an approximation of this book.
And that's the best I can do to explain it. :) This is a series of stories within stories within stories, all of which feel very much like a dream because they follow no real sense of logic. But it's fun and it's whimsical and it's engaging, and there are so many lines that made me laugh out loud. This book was totally worth reading. Too bad I had a library copy and couldn't fold pages or highlight paragraphs or I'd include some quotes in this review.
