The Strange Fascinations of Noah Hypnotik
A surrealist tale by the best-selling author of Mosquitoland (2015) follows the life-changing experiences of a 16-year-old history enthusiast. Noah Oakman loves three things: David Bowie, making real-world connections, and minutiae. Senior year has been rough and Noah dreads returning to the swim team, making a decision about college, and being alone. Then one night his friend Val drags him to a drinking party where Noah is hypnotized by the strange son of a famous inventor. Suddenly he's able to see changes in the people around him from mysterious scars and odd behaviors to rewritten histories and the unconscious ways that friends hurt one another.
