Peering down rabbit holes

Sometimes the truth does not set you free
"We Disappear" is more honest, and thus more troubling, for it reflects the stark knowledge that truth is only an amalgam of experience, a collection of individual shards that don't coalesce into a pleasing whole. As Heim suggests, the search for truth invites the Hansels and Gretels of the world to follow the wrong adult home, the Alices to peer down the rabbit hole -- and fantasy to cover up the nasty grime of reality. - Sarah Weiman reviewing Scott Heim's 3rd novel, We Disappear.
