About this title


Book by Covino, Michael

From Library Journal:

This is the first foray into fiction for a Berkeley poet and journalist. Covino's short stories range from unconventional to highly experimental, and he does not hesitate to tax his readers. Many of the pieces explore the use of narrative voice, and manic monologues emerge as Covino's forte. In terms of the more traditional demands of plot and character, however, these stories will be far from compelling for the general reader. Collections at schools supporting creative writing programs will want to consider. Carl Vogel, San Francisco
