: My favorite novelist, E.E. "Doc" Murdock has a new novel out. It's titled "The Pain Artist: An American Hikikomori." It's an amazing story of a troubled life in the inner city. Gangs and murder, yes, but also love and caring. Of course, it being a Murdock novel, there is also a lot of philosophy and perceptive world view. You can check it out at Amazon.com.
After reading your description of Murdock's book, I went to Amazon and clicked on LOOK INSIDE to read the first chapter. Heavy stuff, but seems to be exceptionally good writing. One reviewer said it should have won the National Book Award. Turns out the writer is a university professor. Okay, I was intrigued. I went to my local Barnes and Noble bookstore, and they didn't have it on the shelf, but they said they could order it for me. I ordered it. I'll report back after it arrives and I've read it.
