By using poetry prose, author Jesse Ball can breathe life into this highly intriguing thriller about memory, the unsound constructs in which humans house these ethereal concept and truth.

    The Paris Review's Plimpton Prize winner and author of Samedi The Deafness, Jesse Ball, is back with another style-driven, hardly intelligible tour of his imagination.

(The bad guys are always saying things like, “For this reason ”).
