This book is a glorious waste of time. Scratch that: it's not fucking glorious, it's lame. It's Van Sant's love-letter-ish/ homoerotic time traveling middle-aged fantasy of his late Muse, River Pheonix. Seriously, Van Sant is one of my longtime fave directors. Particularly for that reason, this is a major disappointment. SKIP IT. ( )
Actually, this book was interesting in that the author was obviously writing a book - in that he used the footnotes to communicate directly with the reader, interupting the flow of the story. It was interesting, as was the tiny drawing on the bottom of each page.

Gus Van Sant goes from auteur to author in an brilliant, inventive, and endlessly entertaining first novel that reads like a Warholian mix of Kurt Vonnegut and Tom Robbins. In the town of Sasquatch, Oregon, Spunky Davis, middle-aged maker of infomercials, is trying to find his next assignment, finish the screenplay that he hopes will bring him Hollywood glory, and deal with the death of his friend and favorite infomercial presenter, teen idol Felix Arroyo. Enter two young aspiring filmmakers, Jack and Matt, whom Spunky finds strangely familiar--especially as Jack bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Felix. But Jack and Matt are not what they appear to be; they are messengers from a dimension beyond time known as Pink, and they invite Spunky to join them on their voyage of transcendence and recovery. Using a delirious array of voices signified by different typefaces, a flip cartoon that animates the novel's action, footnotes and line drawings, Gus Van Sant turns the novel into an explosively visual experience, a captivating combination of texture and text. As original and involving as any of Van Sant's films, "Pink" is both a hip, comic deconstruction of our image-obsessed culture and a genuinely tender story on the classic themes of love, time, and loss.
