NY Times Sunday Review
Eaton's dark, angry and intense first novel uses police documents, psychological evaluations, interviews, straight narration and interior monologues to chronicle the self-destruction of Tim Buckles. At 28, Buckles is a lifeguard, lives in LA and a loving girlfriend. The problem is, he feels as if he's living someone else's life. Feelings of alienation escalates. A pregnancy, a drowning, a desk job & a disastrous visit to his miserable parents push Tim over the edge.

Vincent Eaton's dark, angry and intense first novel chronicles the self-destruction of Tim Buckles. Mr. Eaton concocts a puzzle out of a depraved childhood, a retarded twin brother, multiple murder mysteries, flashbacks, hallucinations, a love story and self-analysis. The pieces all come together in a brave literary debut. – From The New York Times Sunday Review
How to Find Yourself (or a reasonable facsimile)

This is a thin book on a large subject. Or a headbook as a handbook.
It's a compilation of faux scientific studies and comical expert opinion addressing practical methods and current theories in Finding Yourself.
It should guide you to a more practical self-knowledge, peace of mind, spiritual nurturing, fuzzy thinking, and strange sexual longings you really should just keep to yourself.
