About this title

From Booklist:

An old pro at the circularity that is the single largest distinction of Joyce’s outré masterpiece Finnegans Wake, Živkovic has written much in the spiraling, overlapping form of this book’s four “loops.” Never before, though, has his technical intent been so obvious. The similar incidents and dialectic procedures of each story in a loop essentially displace linear narrative suspense. Not that the pleasures of getting from here to there are entirely absent. Each story features a protagonist or two in a predicament that he or she or they inspect and propose to alter before either one of them or a new character diverts attention by beginning to tell the next story in the loop. Characters and situations in one loop’s tales tangentially recur in stories in the other loops in no easily predictable manner, and that binds all four loops. Whereas there’s a way out in earlier examples of Živkovic’s circularity (e.g., “The Square” in Impossible Stories II, 2009), no such luck here. Leavening and lightening the experiment is plenty of laugh-out-loud absurdist humor. --Ray Olson
