Lake of Urine is a weird and unique gem—hilarious and eerie and oddly heartfelt, full of images and bits of language that will lodge permanently in your head.”

DAN CHAON

AUTHOR OF ILL WILL

“Exploring this world is an absolute delight. At every turn we encounter new depths of depravity, new heights of brilliance… and all of it is rendered in prose that is smart and squalid and layered enough to evoke—and perhaps even rival—James Joyce.”

KRISHAN COUPLAND

NEON BOOKS

“Absolutely savage. Truly original. Absurdly funny. Stitch is Irish and it can’t help but seep through. From Swift to Wilde to Beckett, if you’re looking for them you’ll spot them. Winking. I imagine it’s in approval.  The novel itself is as tight as a fist and punches twice as hard.”

ANNE CUNNINGHAM

of the IRISH INDEPENDENT

Enchantingly absurd and sumptuously rendered... Guillermo Stitch has concocted a banquet for the senses, with surprises to savor on every page.”

MATTHEW VOLLMER

AUTHOR OF PERMANENT EXHIBIT

“An absurdist marriage plot with notes of Bohumil Hrabal and a novel’s heft of singularity. Come for the exuberant prose; stay for the bawdy turns and twists, and be rewarded with laughter. This colorful, original tale will not disappoint.” 

SARA LIPPMANN

AUTHOR OF DOLL PALACE

“Guillermo Stitch’s Lake of Urine reads like something Flann O’Brien might have written if he’d just allowed himself to go really wild.”

CHRISTIAN TeBORDO

AUTHOR OF GHOST ENGINE

“There's a world in these pages, a world as rich and strange as any that I’ve encountered in literature, and as well realised. This book is a proper, dip-in-able old fashioned story where you will want to scribble in the margins and dog ear the pages and read it in the bath and smother in hot dropped butter.”

JOHN PATRICK HIGGINS

EVERY DAY I WAKE UP HOPEFUL

“A strange and wonderful thing. There are sentences to relish on every page and you will find yourself wanting to read chunks of it out loud to everyone you meet.”

KATHERINE GRAHAM

THEATRE RE

“Beautiful literary prose, depicting even the most grotesque details, conveys this book’s commitment to what it holds dear. Reminiscent of Confederacy of Dunces’ bawdy humor and Wes Anderson’s colorful, yet darkly whimsical cinematic compositions, Lake of Urine is a bizarre, raucous love story with ornate surprises at every turn.”
