The Point of Vanishing was chosen as the hot book in the Minneapolis Star Tribune's round-up of exciting new work in film, TV, music, visual art, and literature.  Here's the link.  And here's an excerpt.

"Howard Axelrod’s memoir “The Point of Vanishing” is beautiful in its intensity, searing in its pain. Axelrod, 20-year-old golden boy at Harvard, stops by the gym to shoot hoops, and just like that, his life changes...His eventual solution is to withdraw from the world in order to figure it out anew, and his place in it. It’s a breathtaking read."
