75% of this book is kind of perfect, of course. the titular story was really hard for me to get through and don't really know why; maybe i'd like to think i am a reader undaunted by paragraphs that take up more than a whole page of text, but it bothered me. my favorite stories came all in a row, towards the very end of the book -- "home videos," "the air is full of little holes" and "andrea changes her name."

there isn't really that much else to say about kevin brockmeier, except that he is one of my favorites, and it's hard not to admire him even when he ends up failing a little bit.
