'A delightfully quirky modern parable about a lonely insomniac, Homer B Alienson, who turns out to be the imaginary childhood friend of the young Kurt Cobain. Troubled by the question of love and what exactly it might be, Homer embarks on a surreal adventure across America. Seamlessly translated from the Italian by Jon Hunt, this is a smart, funny and philosophical look at love and what it means to be understood.' Observer

'You read this book in a trance, and finishing it is like waking on a cold hillside after a lavish dream... This novel, Pincio's first to appear in English, should be read for the weirdness of its vision. Love-Shaped Story is as dark and desperate as Cobain's lyrics – something of which Pincio must be proud.' Daily Telegraph

Reseña del editor:

A darkly enchanting tale set in Seattle in the 1990s – the fictional life of Kurt Cobain’s childhood imaginary friend...

'Sometime on or before the afternoon of April 5, 1994, Kurt Cobain, the lead singer of Nirvana, killed himself with a single shot to the head. He wrote a one-page note in red ink, addressing it to "Boddah", his childhood imaginary friend...' (taken from a Cobain web 'shrine')

Welcome to rainy Aberdeen, a small logging town near Seattle, sometime in the early 1990s. Homer 'Boddah' Alienson is a lonely insomniac who spends his days watching Twin Peaks and the first Gulf War unfold on TV, and his nights taking long walks through woods that smell of rain. What's more, ever since childhood he has been convinced that the entire population of Aberdeen, including his mother, is possessed by bodysnatchers that are human only in appearance, 'different' beings from whom he has tried to protect himself by never going to sleep. Homer has always lived a life apart – until the day he meets a boy named Kurt, loafing about under a bridge. It is Kurt who reveals to him the way to sleep: heroin, nirvana...
