About the book

'When asked for a list of the best young American writers, I invariably put Padgett Powell at the top' Saul BellowThis book is a conversation, apparently on a porch, between two men who may be difficult to grasp. They move together in aimless convenient debate, coming to conclusions that don't conclude but to positions that may not be finally so aimless. They disagree to agree. They are smart, not smart; fools, not fools. Poignant, hilarious, opaque, diamond-clear, this strange little gem is sure to delight the thousands of devotees found by Powell's The Interrogative Mood.

'When we first came across Padgett Powell's remarkable writing it blew our minds completely' Dazed & Confused

Reviews

Much like its predecessor, You & I is that most radical of rare beasts: a dazzlingly brilliant, thoroughly readable, properly avant-garde novel

- Stuart Hammond, Dazed & Confused

Utterly intriguing

- Grazia

Powell continues to rebel against convention ... displaying a benevolent misanthropy and a juvenile silliness ... He holds a mirror up to what we have become and what we have lost, giving voice to a yearning that avoids sentimentality
