The magic of this book is a disturbing, hallucinogenic magic." -Boston's Weekly DigFollowing a 30-year-old man named Rhonda suffering from depersonalization,Some Things That Meant the World to Me is a gritty and beautiful work that is creative and hypnotic, and should stand as an introduction of an original new voice to American literature.When Rhonda was a child - abandoned and ignored by his mother; abused and misguided by his mother's boyfriend - he imagined the rooms of his home drifting apart from one another like separating continents. Years later, after an embarassing episode as an adult, Rhonda's inner-child appears, leading him to a trapdoor in the bottom of a dumpster behind a taqueria that will force him to finally confront his troubled past.In the spirit ofCruddy andHairstyles of the Damned, Joshua Mohr has created a remarkable and unforgettable character in this charmingly poetic and maturely crafted first novel.Joshua Mohr has been published inOther Voices,The Cimarron Review,Pleiades, andGulf Coast, among others.
