Reading Log

In the short novel i poisoned you, Pablo D'Stair succeeds in very believably putting the reader in the mind of a spree killer. Subtlety and restraint are much in evidence here and the violence, when it does happen, surprises. A very effective character study.

Finished Kim Chinquee's new book, Pretty, earlier today. She demonstrates here as masterful a control of highly compressed fictive spaces as in her previous collection, Oh Baby. Definitely among the small handfull of the flash fiction/prose poem format's best practitioners along with Joseph Young and Daryl Scroggins.
