The Hypo: The Melancholic Young Lincoln

Coming off the high of Fante Bukowski, I’m attempting to overdose on Noah Van Sciver. I much prefer his zany Bukowski character to this historical fiction centering on a mopey Abraham Lincoln who reluctantly marries Mary Todd after spending several weeks in a lonely psychosis (after originally breaking it off due to pressure from her family to prevent the marriage and also his own second thoughts.) Oh well, can’t win ’em all.
