"Even though the principal in Boettcher's Theater-State has a white tiger slumbering in his office, the school that Janus and Katydid and Cassie attend, with Ms. Denton, TX as their teacher, is all too familiar-terrifyingly familiar. The mind-bending cross over between the world of statecraft and a private science academy becomes all too real for Janus...?hen it is revealed that it is drivers that shape the roads and not the other way around...? and when the general paranoid lyricism of Boettcher's odd and compelling novel, like the Mayan ceremonial white roads, leads you not necessarily to a destination but on a journey. It's an amazing journey. I don't think you have any choice but to take it."-Matthew Rohrer
