Fargo Burns is the story of an adoptive New Yorker in such an extreme mental state that he believes himself to be a dog. While being treated for this condition, he makes the terrible mistake of falling in love with a hired killer’s beautiful girlfriend.
Fargo Burns, the madly baffled, restless and beguiling subject of Kos Kostmayer’s compelling novel, bounces like a pinball between excess and sobriety – as do we, his unsettled readers. Kostmayer’s visceral account of one man’s quest for quiet normality is dark, tense, playful and deeply affecting.
