The formal playfulness of Christopher Carter Sanderson's novel is visually apparent at a glance. It consists of two parts, each composed of a series of short fragments. The first part, 79/79/'79, has 79 titled sections of 79 words each, and is set in 1979. The second, @1000thenovel, is set in 1980, and consists of roughly 1000 tweets of 140 characters each; the story also has 140 characters. The book is far more, however, than a formalist game. It is a deeply affecting Bildungsroman in which an adolescent explores many different windows into himself and his emerging world, and where the unity and plurality of experience are vividly encountered together. It's a masterful experiment in the best sense, and a deeply affecting story.

Reviews:
"A persuasive rendering of the aimlessness, corruption and squalor of adolescent life in America. Sanderson’s Judah Lowe powerfully reminds us that opportunity and privilege are no substitute for a viable path to one’s own redemption.” -- Yoram Hazony, author of "The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture"
“An unusual bildungsroman that mostly transcends the limitations of its formats.” -- Kirkus
“A Proust in Princeton." -- Matthew Gasda, author of "Moon on Water"
“Fascinating! The best ever hyper-reality depiction of a certain type of high school experience experienced by those who grow up to write Twitter novels.” -- Anne Kadet, Wall Street Journal
