liked it
Read in December, 2006

i liked the underlying background color--a couple living in beautiful idaho--better than the foregrounded plot--a couple pretending to their eastcoast friends and family that they're having a child. the theme of photography and imagery also less interesting than the description of massive sky and 21st century rural life... olsen's also a great describer of food prep and drink choices. re: the style, he seemed to have swallowed david markson whole. i have no complaints about it because i love markson's wit and his iambic-sounding pacing--but it was a litle eerie to hear the echo so clear.
