Waiting on Wednesday: I Felt a Funeral in My Brain by Will Walton
I Felt a Funeral in My Brain by Will Walton. 304 p. Push/ Scholastic, May 29, 2018. 9780545709569.
Publisher synopsis: How do you deal with a hole in your life? Do you grieve? Do you drink? Do you make out with your best friend? Do you turn to poets and pop songs? Do you question everything? Do you lash out? Do you turn the lashing inward? If you're Avery, you do all of these things. And you write it all down in an attempt to understand what's happened -- and is happening -- to you. I Felt a Funeral, In My Brain is an astonishing novel about navigating death and navigating life, at a time when the only map you have is the one you can draw for yourself.
A week or so ago, Andrew Smith posted cryptically to Facebook about this. I adore this man and his books and his taste in other's books so far, so I took notice. He revealed the cover and title on his FB page yesterday.
