Most of the work in this book is in prose form, and explores some of the more interesting corners of what prose can do. The sentences, while often employing normative grammar and syntax, take a turn. Descriptiveness is upended. "Fate with unkissed lips allowing the wick to ignite a vigilant ear, mixing things up seemingly indestructible after midnight at such an hour an entrancing tableau." Run-on sentences at their very best. The words seem to expand and contract to fit the space of their thoughts. This is a solid and interesting book, well worth reading.--Jessica Grim
