“This is an unusual, vividly imagined pairing of richly textured images with dense, sharply observed, often wryly humorous miniature and smaller-than-miniature stories: my favorite may be ‘On Spelunking’ (why is our mysterious narrator wearing ballet flats in a cave?). Then again, maybe it’s the Thomas Bernhard-like, breathless ‘On Exercises in Futility.’ Very enjoyable.” -Lydia Davis
