I, Benjamin: A Quasi-Autobiographical Novella

I, Benjamin - Theodore Enslin This is classified as "visionary fiction" on the back and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Gene Wolfe. It's a slim, very nicely made short novel (novella?) in which the ground is not particularly firm under the eponymous Benjamin's feet. It's published by McPherson, a great indie press whose books are worth checking out especially if you like translations, historical fiction, or Maya Deren.
