Fiction. "Laynie Browne channels the energy of Mira in a book that is both charred and luminous. Her writing is a gift of abrasion, making the body of the reader a portal too. Who is arriving? Who is very near? The intensity of this narrative carried me through the summer in which I read it. Browne is a genius of aperture and stance. All desire, she has written a remarkable book. It changes something to read it (the book) and to have it near. If you are reading these words, then you have found your way to Browne's work and her immense, compassionate and tender genius as a writer and a human being."—Bhanu Kapil
