Going Bovine by Libba Bray

Description: A dark comedy about friendship, road trips, and mad cow disease...

"It’s a sort of absurdist, dark comedy about a 16-year-old slacker kid with mad cow disease. 'It’s the feel-good mad cow disease book of the summer!' Or something like that. But 'Going Bovine' is really about those moments in life where we question everything and no longer see/feel/experience our reality in the same way (which is what a lot of adolescence feels like), and whether or not you have to let go of this reality in order to gain clarity. Which is where the String Theory business comes in. Black holes. Viking yard gnomes. Death-obsessed dwarves. True love and magic hardware stores. Disneyworld. Yeah, good times, good times. Should be fun to work on, although I’m pretty much over hamburgers now." -Libba Bray, The Brooklyn Paper
