The Book of Days consists of a short story told each day by a man trying to talk himself back to sanity. These daily inventions emulate the styles of everything from traditional ghost stories to the works of O’Henry and James Whitcomb Riley, from westerns to fifties science fiction. As a sequence illustrating the narrator’s deep internal struggle, these stories build to an electrifying whole.
