Current Era Fiction

Set This House In Order by Matt Ruff

Get inside the head of a person with multiple-personality disorder in this compelling novel. As near as I can tell from my brief research, this book is a completely realistic depiction of the condition. Very similar to The Speed of Dark, there isn't much to this book beyond showing the workings of the protagonist's mind. This provides plenty of material to fill the book, and it's written in such a way that the pages fly by. The story doesn't actually matter much (it's a character study, after all) but you won't care.
Rating: 3 of 5
