A Musical Novel
by Dylan James Brock
"This is seriously one of the best books I've ever read. If you're a fan of books such as Catcher in the Rye or The Bell Jar in which the narrator is, we're told, mentally ill yet so relatable that you question your own sanity, I recommend this book. 5 Stars."
- Amazon Review
Dry World is a novel about how close love can be to a psychosis. In this narrative told by a split mind, two love stories about one psychotic narrator are told simultaneously. The first plot, set in 2003, is at the end of a college career and the second plot, set in 2005, is at the beginning of a literary one. Each spirals into violence through the recklessness characterizing the severe mental illness. What results is a patient and realistic bildungsroman about how to learn through love from madness.
