Bobby Hall, or as you may know him, Logic, has written a very strange book in Supermarket. This strange book has much, much more going on than I would have thought possible from this first time novelist. Don't judge a rapper by his face tattoos, because this book packs a Palahniuk-tasting-punch.

Flynn is a normal 20 something year old living at home, trying to figure out what to do with his life. Until he gets a book deal on the 15ish pages he submitted about a person working in a supermarket. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, he decides to throw himself into book research and get a job working at the local grocery store. This is when he meets Frank and when things get weird. As in: "don't believe a word you read" weird. It's also when this novel takes flight.

Logic wrote a damn good story, and he wants to share it with all of us. Don't miss the boat here, because Bobby Hall has.

Description


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The stunning debut novel from one of the most creative artists of our generation, Bobby Hall, a.k.a. Logic.

“Bobby Hall has crafted a mind-bending first novel, with prose that is just as fierce and moving as his lyrics. Supermarket is like Naked Lunch meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest—if they met at Fight Club.”—Ernest Cline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Ready Player One

Flynn is stuck—depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn’t work when it’s saving you from yourself. But things aren’t quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn’s world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn’t want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him. A darkly funny psychological thriller, Supermarket is a gripping exploration into madness and creativity. Who knew you could find sex, drugs, and murder all in aisle nine?
