With a book listed among the 100 greatest novels of all time, decades separating Canaris from the hefty advance taken on his next book The Beast, which was to be his masterpiece and not a page to show of it, Canaris is a great fictional creation an eniga. Inevitably, speculation grows that the book was a myth, a lie, a joke.
Upon his death, Mark May, a yound English professor who barely knew the man finds himself named as Canaris's literary executor and begins a search through lives and letters that is at once gripping, hilarious and affirming. A true page-turner, P.F. Kluge's 'Gone Tomorrow' is equal parts Richard Russo and Michael Chabon, and yet entirely unlike anything you've ever read.
