    When Michael Kimbell said that nobody is writing sentences like Dawn Raffel s sentences, he was not exaggerating Her lines, her stories, are spiky things that don t sit easily in the hand I felt a peculiar sort of stress as I read Further Adventures in the Restless Universe, newly published by Dzanc Books I was confronted with how the stories resist simple narrative and scene and dialogue, while at the same time luring me in with their intoxicating mood, the emotive power behind miscommunic When Michael Kimbell said that nobody is writing sentences like Dawn Raffel s sentences, he was not exaggerating Her lines, her stories, are spiky things that don t sit easily in the hand I felt a peculiar sort of stress as I read Further Adventures in the Restless Universe, newly published by Dzanc Books I was confronted with how the stories resist simple narrative and scene and dialogue, while at the same time luring me in with their intoxicating mood, the emotive power behind miscommunication, and the uncertain standing her characters like us readers have in the world There is something precise and potent in Raffel s brief tales of family, lovers, and attempts to connect twen...

    This book should come with a warning Don t read when tired You have to be completely alert to follow Raffel s original, choppy prose style I found myself rereading passages many times, as I was reading before bed and often exhausted However, it was worth it Don t know too many women writing like this If you are a Diane Williams fan, you must read this book I found Raffel s style particularly effective when writing scenes between family members Those unspoken words in the gaps of her pros This book should come with a warning Don t read when tired You have to be completely alert to follow Raffel s original, choppy prose style I found myself rereading passages many times, as I was reading before bed and often exhausted However, it was worth it Don t know too many women writing like this If you are a Diane William...
