Book Review of INCOGNOLIO by Michael Sussman

INCOGNOLIO by Michael Sussman

Bewildered but lovable author, Muldoon, is trapped in the dreamlike narrative of his own surrealistic novel. Beginning with just a title—Incognolio—he enters a bizarre fictional realm that plunges him into an identity crisis of anguishing proportions. Is he writing a story in which his stillborn twin sister has come to life, or is he the one who died at birth and it’s his sister who’s writing the novel? Guided only by the whims and dictates of his subconscious mind, Muldoon must unravel the mystery of Incognolio and write his way to freedom or succumb to madness.

Book Review –

Incognolio was quit the ride of a book. Right from the get go we’re thrown into a story where we wonder is this the writer, Muldoon, string of thoughts as he’s writing or is this the way Muldoon see’s the world after his concussion. It took me a few chapters to really get the flow of this story but it’s a quirky story with humor sprinkled into this rollercoaster of a story. This is not a quick, light read but if you are looking for something that is different, something that will bend your minds way of thinking, something that will at times make you laugh… than you should give Incognolio a go!

I was given an advanced copy of this book for my 100% honest opinion.


Abandoned by a cackle of laughing hyenas, Michael Sussman endured the drudgery and hardships of a Moldavian orphanage until fleeing with a traveling circus at the age of twelve. A promising career as a trapeze artist was cut short by a concussion that rendered him lame and mute. Sussman wandered the world, getting by on such odd jobs as pet-food tester, cheese sculptor, human scarecrow, and professional mourner while teaching himself the art of fiction. He now lives in Tahiti with Gauguin, an African Grey parrot.
