This book reminds me of The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe. But, then the rest of the book is our first person character's downward spiral into madness. It's a very good, but oddly strange book.

I've always liked Jim Carroll, but this reads like exactly what it is--an unfinished novel. He died before he was able to complete it, and although it does have a beginning, middle and end, I'm sure it would have been a much better book if Carroll had had enough time left to work his magic. Sad.
