After finishing it, I am not sure how to describe it. There is little to no plot although it is billed as Kira Henehan.

I laughed out loud often while reading it. What other book has recurring gags about gravel, golf carts, and a domesticated snake? If you're looking for a book with a conventional plot and conventional characters, this is definitely not the book for you. If, on the other hand, you enjoy literary fiction that pushes the boundaries of the novel in unexpected and often amusing directions, you should definitely give it a try.
I just didnt get what this book was about at all Am curious to hear what other people think of this. Its possible that I just don't read the NY Times enough to get it? This is the most unusual work of fiction I have read. For being only pages or so, there is about 80 chapters to it.
The primary voice, Finley, is supposedly writing the book as the concluding investigative report, which just happens to be full or rambling restatements, one-sentence 'chapters', and tangential streams of thought.
