Creativity. I started reading songwriter John Darnielle’s novel, Wolf in White Van, with low expectations. After a dozen or so pages, I was hooked. Darnielle explores themes of isolation and creativity, and the ways in which fantasy can reward and punish. The power of imagination is such a force in life, and Darnielle presents a protagonist whose vivid imagination may well have saved his life. Readers who can become comfortable with an unusual novel are those most likely to enjoy this one.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
