Details

Dr. Barnes, meanwhile, is about to become famous for a book he wrote thirty years ago. Nostalgia once considered a potentially-fatal disease when it was first diagnosed in the 17th century has been relegated to the realm of the sentimental, but based on Dr. Barnes theories, people are beginning to reconsider its dangerous effects: doctors return to the old cures; pharmaceutical companies solicit Dr. Barnes to endorse the new anti-nostalgic medications they have developed; and Gene seeks out Dr. Barnes to somehow realign the missing pieces of his past into a story with a beginning, middle, and ending.

"THE NOSTALGIA ECHO is the best book you will read this year, or any year: the exact antidote to all those tired, humorless, beige-colored novels of recent memory, the writing here pops with both a dazzling intelligence and a devastating depth of character. Mr. Hess carries on in the great tradition of Vonnegut, D. Barthelme, and every other genius literary madman."—Joe Meno
