Days Between Stations by Steve Erickson


Days Between Stations by Steve Erickson

In a world of cataclysm and unraveled time, a young woman's face, a misbegotten childhood in a Parisian brothel, and the fragment of a lost movie masterpiece are the only clues in a man's search for his past. Steve Erickson's Days Between Stations is the stunning, now classic dream-spec of our precarious age -- by turns beautiful and obsessed, haunted and hallucinated, in which lives erotically collide, the past ambushes the future, and forbidden secrets intercut with each other like the frames of a film.


One of the most important writers of his generation. Erickson's work feels like right here, right now. Against it, most new fiction reads like it was written by stenographers. -- The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Erickson is a gambler, one of the fabulous mythmakers who are needed in these times of deprivation of the imagination. -- The New York Times Book Review

There isn't a risk that Steve Erickson hasn't taken in this novel. One gets the feeling that he's laid everything on the line. -- Los Angeles Times
