Reading Log

Jan 24, 2010

I'm very enthusiastic about Matthew Simmons' novella A Jello Horse. Very beautifully crafted sentences, insightful and sensitive, playfully creative and inventive; this is a terrific little book. Another young writer to watch!

Just read a fun and quirky chapbook by Aaron Burch called How to Take Yourself Apart, How to Make Yourself Anew. Written as a cycle of prose poems in the form of instructions in a "How-to" manual, the whimsical quality of these pieces reminded me of Eric Chevillard in their stretching of reality into some fascinatingly unreal shapes.
