☁ “This is the kind of book I do like to read but do not read enough, because I don’t *know* American fiction well enough. It’s full of excessive American consumerism, conspiracies and family woes in a tone that almost normalises fear and disasters. Every sentence has a depth of meaning – even the title is perfect, relaying the everything but the nothingness that is poignant to people living in fear. Despite its seriousness, it is actually a funny, silly old read. Recommend it to all conspiracy theroists.” – Rachel
