Description:

"Tao Lin will kick your ass and say thank you afterwards!"-Amy Fusselman, author of The Pharmacist's Mate Tao Lin's book blog, ReaderofDepressingBooks.com, has made him one of the most talked-about young writers on the scene today. His commentaries taking mainstream writers to task and calling for the death of commercial writing have generated nonstop discussion and made him the subject of innumerable profiles on leading cultural websites, from McSweeney's to Bookslut to Gawker and on. Meanwhile, his fiction appears regularly in the 'zines and websites defining the new culture. All this while still an undergraduate at New York University-where Lin won the school's prestigious writing award. Less than a year after graduating, Lin meets and surpasses all expectations in a debut novel set in the bizarre alternative reality of today's youth culture. EEEEE EEE EEEE is a pleasingly sophisticated work, an unself-conscious yet commanding tour de force about the search for meaning in a culture gone mad with celebrities and advertising. Depicting a group of friends transitioning between school and adulthood, Lin's prose is strikingly stylish, funny, and lyrical, as he reminds us that youth is still-refreshingly-a time of deep questioning, poignant realization, fun, and hope. It is a place where animals talk, books and music matter, honesty counts, and you can ask, without fear of embarrassment, "What's a Jhumpa Lahiri?" It is a sparkling, joyous debut. Tao Lin lives in New York City.
