"with its dark humour and loopy lyricism, it bewitches"

There’s a rhythmic mannerism to the novel that hypnotises even as it bewilders, a kind of raw symmetry: "you are essential to me and I am okay to you", or, more amusingly (and randomly): "Anybody should punch anybody in the face with beauty, at any time, without getting punched back by a penis." Hex is confounding and confessional; sometimes, it’s plain weird ("I have only ever been a crayon").
