Would make a great companion read with Kafka, Bradbury, Ovid. The mind of the transformation here is what's daring; not the trappings of it. There are no splashes of contemporary angst over language. Rather, it is emphatically invested in its circus, the way Fellini is invested in his. This is not poetry that lingers over the kill, either. It makes its meat fresh and available for us, then moves on. Ah, it is youth itself.

THIS IS WHY > "Inside the space where its heart should have been, you retrieved a fistful of red confetti. You held your fist outside the cage and hummed as you released a paper roar."

I have (finally) read Paul Edward Cunningham's Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and could not be more disappointed in myself for not doing so sooner. The language in this ebook--and not just the sheer language itself but everything that the language carries and contains as well--is so moving, so undeniable, so evocative of so many different things, that I can't help but eagerly await reading whatever else Cunningham writes next.

This is truly beautiful. I gave it 4 stars because of the end. It is identical to my film criticisms--but this is really a wonderful piece and I recommend it highly for its masterful language and imagery. I just didn't want to be told what the end told me.
