My favorite exchange that elicited more than a few laughs featured the fallout of one of the setpiece bizarre occurrences in the book:
"Sorry about what happened last time. That wasn't the first time I saw a dead body, but I wasn't expecting one and being by myself I just panicked, you know?"
"Oh yeah, I saw the article in the newspaper."
"I mean, you don't think I just shot some old lady for no reason, do you?"
In context, this exchange with the main character, Chris, and a manic cop who may or may not have murdered and elderly woman whilst giving Chris a ride through the titanically bizarre town of Elaine, is supremely funny and had me cackling out loud.
In short, this is a very dark, yet darkly funny, journey into the waking nightmare of a town that has a pulse, a heartbeat, and a mind of its own. Enter at your own risk. And don't go to Elaine's apartment. In the town of Elaine. Not the Elaine on the train. The other Elaine. Got it?
