Revelation Countdown

4.11  ·  Rating Details ·  9 Ratings  ·  1 Review
These stories project onto the open road not the nirvana of personal freedom but rather a type of freedom more closely resembling loss of control. In such an atmosphere "Revelation Countdown", borrowed from a road sign in Tennessee, proves prophetic: It may not arrive at 7:30, but revelation will inevitably find the traveler.

Read this straight through in one sitting. Then went back and read several of the stories again. Fantastic collection of road stories where everything is coming undone. The language is dense, particular, and passionately detailed. The maximalist approach bears comparison to Lee K. Abbott and maybe the early work of Debra Monroe. The only piece I didn’t really enjoy was the two-column all dialog “BMW Conversation,” although it is an interesting experiment.
