Synopsis: Fiction. "A truly epigrammatic prose can be difficult to pull off in English. The thirty-one fictions[']...economy is at once playful and finely controlled, reticent and suggestive.... Bundy is at her best tracing the persistence of desire with a mournful wit reminiscent of the best work of Lydia Davis.... The real virtues of DUNCECAP, though, are formal. It reads like the contents of a costume jewelry box—each item oddly wrought in a new way, with a philosophic modesty that's rare in self-conscious 'play'"—Brian Lennon.
