“Is sport really an opiate for the masses or something a lot more profound? According to the likes of Albert Camus and David Foster Wallace, it’s most certainly the latter. Author Shane Anderson cuts a similar jib, positing that it just might hold the key to understanding life itself.” –GRAEME CAMPBELL at Highsnobiety

I reviewed Rainald Goetz’s “Rave” (translated by Adrian Nathan West and published by Fitzcarraldo Editions) in the Los Angeles Review of Books.
Designer Prem Krishnamurthy writes: “A weird, worthwhile, and sometimes even useful piece of writing.”
Publishers Weekly gave After the Oracle a positive review: “This evocative story deserves a wide audience.”
Rob Madole interviewed me for the LARB and had this to say about After the Oracle: “Bracingly honest, tender, and formally inventive, the book manages to find a new approach to an age-old question: what does it take to live a meaningful life?”
Richard Crepeau reviewed After the Oracle and wrote: “as a study in the salvaging of a life, this small volume offers a fascinating and remarkable story of one man’s love of sport, devotion to a team, and how that saves his life.”
