Fiction. "SELF-TITLED DEBUT is a mess o' finely machined machine-like fictions. There is a sublime relentlessness in the generative power of the permutations at all levels from word to sentence to paragraph to page. He exhausts exhaustion effortlessly. These inventive hypoxic hieroglyphs gin-up ingeniously a whole new notion of genus: story and the species: short. Some debut indeed"--Michael Martone.
