Percival Everett by Virgil Russell free pdf A story inside a story inside a story. A man visits his aging father in a nursing home, where his father writes the novel he imagines his son would write. The narrative of a contractor-for hire, Nat Turner, and William Styron twist together with anecdotes from the nursing home, each building on the other until they crest in a wild, outlandish excursion with experimental meta-commentary.
