Thanks for the link! LET’S GO PLAY is an obscure book that’s slowly getting some recognition. It’s one of those novels that’s a whole experience—you don’t just read it you kind of endure it. Unique and unsettling!

I had heard of it previously, but as far as I know had never seen a copy...probably did read it in conjunction with the mention of THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. Thanks for the entry!
