Student of the Hippocampus
This literary leviathan of glorious vocabulary and imagery takes the reader on a flabbergasting swim through a deep and mysterious landscape of a brain—it is an at once loose and tight, Escher-like sculpture of nerves—it is a wonderful weave of complicated yarns and mirrors, roots and seeds—at first glance, random and entropic, until patterns and explanations seem to emerge only to dissolve again. Student of the Hippocampus is a thrilling ride through the rich, complex, far-reaching, incredibly imaginative brain of Casey Bush. Strap on your seat belts and swoop, swoon, dip, dive. It is a fantastic voyage.
