"Who among us has not sat at the steering wheel of a vehicle staring into nothing, or stood vacantly on a lawn or a grassless patch of dirt staring at something no one else could see? Or, for that matter, staggered. Herein lies one strength of Sims’ novel — we are as likely at certain moments to identify with the undead as with the living: to see ourselves too easily as stunted, ravaged, hardly human."
(via The Millions : At the Frontiers of the Unsayable: Bennett Sims’s A Questionable Shape which “A Questionable Shape combines a quest, a romance, humor, and an epidemic of zombies, with philosophy, footnotes, history, science, the arts, half of Daniel Webster, cascades of lyricism and truckloads of realism”)
Bennett Sims is HERE, TONIGHT, with Fiona Maazel and Benjamin Hale. Don’t miss it!
