Incognolio by Michael Sussman

Enter the astonishing world of Incognolio, a psychological thriller that’s unlike any book you’ve ever read.

Adrift in the dreamlike narrative of his own novel, Muldoon traverses identities, planes of reality, and the dark recesses of his psyche in an effort to grasp the enigmatic Incognolio. Is he writing a story in which his stillborn twin sister has come to life, or is he the one who died at birth and it’s his sister who’s writing the novel? Guided only by the whims and dictates of his subconscious mind, Muldoon must finally face his demons and write his way to freedom or succumb to madness.

The novel currently has a 4½-star rating on Goodreads, and Teller—of Penn & Teller—has tweeted: “I’m not partial to much modern fantasy writing, but the writing here is so Lewis Carroll/Anthony Burgess that I’m finding it irresistible.”
