9780974605388: The Singing Fish

Fiction. The interwoven tales that make up THE SINGING FISH are not told but rather spun from a primal, almost child-like source of mythic language sublimated from the fundamental building blocks of mud, brother, river, girl, moon, fish and a rusted nail. "Peter Markus' gorgeously spare, riverine fables of brotherly sweetness and violence are hypnotic, haunting, and sublime"--Gary Lutz. "There is an obsessive quality about Peter Markus' writing that I am obsessed with and a musicality that I cannot get out of my head. The fish are singing and Peter Markus is too"--Michael Kimball.

Review:

Peter Markus' gorgeously spare, riverine fables of brotherly sweetness and violence are hypnotic, haunting, and sublime. --GARY LUTZ, author of Stories in the Worst Way and I Looked Alive

There is an obsessive quality about Peter Markus' writing that I am obsessed with and a musicality that I cannot get out of my head. The fish are singing and Peter Markus is too. --MICHAEL KIMBALL, author of The Way the Family Got Away and How Much of Us There Was

Very little occurs in a Peter Markus story that does not involve a fish, mud, a brother, and, usually, a concluding act of brutality. Markus's language is primal, even primitive, but his sentence structure is among the most perplexing and, ultimately, fascinating I have ever encountered. Markus serves up sentence after sentence of startling musicality. These aren't stories in any traditional sense; they are works of a prose stylist with the ear of a poet." --Peter Conners, American Book Review
