    Fist to the Mouth Review of The Legend s Daughter Idaho Stories by David KranesOriginally reviewed by Larry Menlove in the Artists of Utah Magazine, 15 Bytes I read one of the stories about halfway through David Kranes new collection, The Legend s Daughter, I became lost in the language the tangents, the circle rounds, the free form understated bombast I started to wonder if I might need whiskey flowing in my veins to understand the narrative, to tap into some muddy logic that I was missing for trying to read the story straight Then, and it was a relief for it was too late and I was in no mood to crack a cap and splash corn bourbon on the rocks the narrator of his own accord admitted to speaking in tongues So I was off the hook, at least for that reading I picked up the book the next day, started over with the difficult glossolalia story, and I understood Fully Yet I d had no conversion in the night No visitation No holy rolling and Angel of Death mushroom touch on the floor of the First Church of Idaho You ask What is the First Church of Idaho I say In the beginning and mention my mother s hand, my ankles, my father s corrupting restlessness I say I enter any building under a cross I remember tell me every time I use the word intersection And at intersection is where many of the characters in Kranes fine stories find themselves Consider two men from the East, thigh deep, umbilically joined in the...

    I found it a little difficult to get through some of the stories The stories are very multi dimensional and I think a few were a little beyond my scope of comprehension.
