I own this book, but I haven't read it yet, because it was in such a bizarre format.
If you want some great music (probably the best and least-known CD to be produced in the last 10 years) listen to "Haunted" by Poe. Poe is the sister of Mark Z. Danielewski and her "Haunted" CD is sort of a companion piece to the book, and even has a track called "House of Leaves".
"Is it wrong for me to long for the simpler days of yesteryear when performers weren't so confusing? Jagger, Bowie...you KNEW they were women. But nowadays, this internationally ranked cheerleading coach just can't figure it out. Neil Patrick Harris? You confuse me. I HEAR you're gay, but there you are on my TV playing a normal, womanizing, cardigan-wearing straight. That's confusing. And then I heard a rumor you're not actually a doctor. So much sneaky gay deception!" --Sue's Corner
