THE REPUBLIC OF LETTERS BOOKS: Cut Up (novel) 2011

“I think it is astonishing--like nothing else I've read. It is acute and sophisticated in its technique, and amazingly compact, which adds to its form.”

I forget how I came across this book. My partner actually started reading it first. She's into the modernists and she said it reminded her of Willa Cather. I picked it up when she finished it and it made me think of Faulkner. We were both wrong. This book exists in its own realm. The language is a little difficult at first, but once you get into it, you realize you're thick in the middle of this beautiful, harsh Indiana landscape.
