From the Back Cover:
'My feeling about technique in art is that it has about the same value as technique in love-making. That is to say, heartfelt ineptitude has its appeal and so does heartless skill; but what you want is passionate virtuosity' says John Barth.

Lost in the Funhouse is a dazzling experiment in virtuosity; not a collection of conventional short stories but a sequence of messages from the author to the reader - 'meant to be received all at once'.

reserved for Monopoly Turn 6 - LOST

So we left for the amusement park Linnanmäki in Helsinki to find the funhouse in there. Unfortunately all the names of the attractions in the park have a typical finnish name, that didn't mean anything to us. So we wandered lost through the park for quite some time to check out the different places and without finding the right place.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

We finally managed to find the right place and left the book there. The book can be found inside the funhouse where you have all different mirrors, on top of one yellow mirror. We just hope we'll find our way back out to be able to write down the release details...

Seems we did make it out, although that took some time too. This is now several hours later, hoping someone will catch the book and find a way to journal it without getting all lost on the road back or on the BookCrossing site.
