At the end of the day, Death visits everyone. Right before that, Charlie does.
You might meet him in a hospital, in a warzone, or at the scene of a traffic accident.
Then again, you might meet him at the North Pole - he gets everywhere, our Charlie.

Very lyrical. Unlike anything else I've read. Think of it as a book of voices, of dialogue. You glean indirect characterization from dialogue, but the fun in it is that it's semi-realistic; there's just a component that is surreal— mentioned are the current political states of our world, and our country (after all, it was published in 2016). A unique read! Interesting, synapse-generating, stream-of-consciousness sometimes... but quick paced, like running a marathon... brutal and cruel. Quite enjoyable!
