@tsarstepan,
Ha!
You don't know the half of it.

As the story progressed, there were times that a footnote lasted like 30 pages, and within that footnote there would be references to other footnotes many pages hence.

I've read the book twice. The first time I admit I ended up skimming through the footnotes.

The 2nd time I went all out and read them. Sometimes the footnotes were a great story in themselves.

There was also at least one easter egg in the footnotes. One of the footnotes referenced another one.....that wasn't there. I was determined to find it.
I did. I can't remember what the clue was on finally being able to locate it, but it was an extremely difficult (but satisfying) puzzle.

In fact, the footnotes were very reflective of the book in general...echos within echos, mazes that double back, and when you get back to point X, and the other corridor is moved, or no longer there.

It is truly being Alice on the other side of the looking glass. Nothing was how it seemed.

To confront rising sea levels, an NYC artist invites you to stand in the East River for 12 hours

@tsarstepan,
A mystery car is up for grabs in NYC. Let's try to find it.
Quote:
There are 1,000 keys that unlock this one vehicle – which is rumored to be a Chrysler PT Cruiser, though unconfirmed. An untold number of people already have this key. You can purchase one yourself online for $19, then receive tips about the car’s location through a hotline (337-539-4255). Beyond that, the Keys4All concept is simple* enough to anyone who’s ever played "Grand Theft Auto":

“If you find the car, it is yours. But if you want to enjoy the fruits of your victory and drive, then you must accept the risk of taking the car out in the world – that another driver-errant may snatch the vehicle out from under you.”
