Assessment:

Plot: Altman integrates multiple storylines into a mosaic-style narrative that is enjoyably absurd and atmospheric. The weaker transitions between threads, however, result in a sometimes disorienting reading experience.

Prose: Written in a stream-of-consciousness style, the narrative dynamically weaves between characters, moments, and emotions.

Originality: Altman’s novel reads like a bawdy comedy of errors unfolding within a chaotic stage production.

Character Development: Altman’s characters, true to the nature of satire, are a quirky cast of caricatures who play into the story’s conceptual framework.
