Item description for Charlie P (Green Integer) by Richard Kalich...

"Charlie P is energetic, delightfully sardonic, dark without being oppressive, playful and very readable."-Sven Birkerts

In Charlie P, New York author Richard Kalich offers us a singularly unique, comic, and outlandish everyman. Akin to other great American icons such as Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt and Ring Lardner's Al, Charlie P plumbs the relation between fantasy and reality to offer us a character both asocial and alienated and, at the same time, at the heart of the American dream.

Reviews - What do customers think about Charlie P (Green Integer)?

Very highly recommended  Mar 3, 2006
Richard Kalich has written another important book, this one begging repeated reads, unfolding as it does like a dream, slippery and too fast. Unlike the protagonist of Kalich's prior masterwork, "The Nihilisthete," the reality in which Charlie P (dys)functions is a suspended one, a purgatorial Neverland where all and nothing are perpetually at war, a warped mirror in which his own image is terminally distorted. Kalich renders Charlie P's crises - his perverted sense of the possible, his unrelenting impotencies - with a certain solemn absurdity belonging to someone who knows this reality to be yours, too. It is through this quality especially that Kalich's heavyweight bloodline can be traced: Fernando Pessoa, Max Frisch, Franz Kafka, among others.

If you're after something that will go through you like a bowl of fiber, look elsewhere. If not, do yourself a favor and read this short, disproportionately heavy book. It will take up residence in your guts.
