A very odd little book: it contains more four to seven word sentences comprised of monosyllables than any I have ever read; there is little punctuation either; and its not simple - so elusive that its hard to understand what is going on. It was very much not to my taste, though I was able to appreciate the delicacy of it.
dense poetic prose - don't miss a word. pithy.
discovered through reading Left Hook by George Bowering.
"He doesn't know you can’t catch the glory on a hook and hold on to it. That when you fish for the glory you catch the darkness too. That if you hook twice the glory you hook twice the fear"
the story coils through a small scattered settlement following coyote past ghost, family and the sere, dusty hills.
A book in the vein of Flannery O'Connor, sparse prose, opaque plot and ambiguous ending. It works as the prose is exquisite, and the setting unique.
