it was amazing
bookshelves: 2011
Read in August, 2011


My favorite was "The Netherlands Lives with Water."

(Please go read them, so we can talk about how perfectly he can sums up the human condition, the duality of how the world destructs us as we destruct ourselves, the beautiful landscapes in every one of his tales, the stories within stories, those endings - like an afterthought - that just destroy you, the way he can shift focus from one person's internal dialogue to the external conditions surrounding them, the way that no story contains him yet his voice is so consistent in every word on the page, how a story can be absolutely, utterly flawless and you know that's what he has to offer but are utterly amazed when it happens time and time again.)
