Basal Ganglia takes place in a pillow fort built by lovers Ingrid and Rollo. It meticulously documents their estrangement from one another, their detachment from the world, and their attempt to bring it all back together with the help of their fabric lovechild. It is a piece of literature, in the sense that Kafka's The Trial or Nabokov's Invitation to a Beheading are pieces of literature. This, I am not afraid to say, is a book for the ages.
Revert's style is very straightforward. There is an almost scientific precision to the way in which he chronicles the shared life of Ingrid and Rollo. The book impresses, not with any florid affectations of style but with a well crafted depiction of human relationships that is immediately recognizable even as it unfolds in a genuinely bizarre and dreamlike context. The combination of incredibly strange content and well grounded writing is invigorating. It's like watching Eraserhead as filmed through a documentarian's lens.
Go forth, and read it. Now. You're welcome.
