    1. Flashes of great writing in this.epic poem Novella Series of stories There is some lovely prose poetry in here, but it is surrounded by a lot of filler mostly fatuous neurotic musings As stand alone pieces, some of these stories are very good For me it does not work as a book I failed to see a vision for this work coming through.

    2. Adding this to my small but growing stack of books about female desire, written by women who aren t dumbly rewriting women they were taught to write by traditional longform narrative examples from post World War 2 Here is an example of contemporary fiction by a contemporary author who is breaking from longstanding male produced and enforced and celebrated literary traditions Yes.

    3. Much of this I just did not understand, in all honesty Some of it is brilliant, and some of it is funny, but overall I agree with another reviewer that I didn t see a clear theme bridging all of these short pieces.

    7. This was a book so red and now that I ve finished, it is a book so read Sorry Levy charts a woman s life and loves in Munich, rural America and Berlin The book is structured in a series of sparse, loopy vignettes filled with word play and non sequiturs Funny Yes a lot of it is funny But there is an edge here as Levy touches upon the Shoah, on death, on animal slaughter and the complexities of love and betrayal, but from a surreal, unexpected angle It s a one sitting book, and then one to dip int [...]

    8. Is this a novel Sure thing It is a book at least, a narrative that tells a sweeping story, that traces a history, that shows the coming of age and of blossoming and mature and gone rotten love Yet it fractures this, it takes it to absurdity and it simplifies it and it lets a simple, silly moment come to hold everything.Perhaps there is too much held in a simple moment, at times Perhaps it is funnier than heartfelt when it should be the opposite, but so what It is good.
