About this title

Synopsis:

Book by West, Paul

From Library Journal:

Novelist West, noted for such rarefied works as Rat Man of Paris, demonstrates a diachronic, global sensibility in this first collection of stories. Relativizing time and space, he emphasizes the arbitrariness of what we experience and the indeterminacy of what we think. Whether housewife, anthropologist, or astronomer, his characters share a sort of cosmic ennui less plausible in some than in others. This, coupled with his dense language and methodical saturation of images, makes the work a fair representative of a postmodern aesthetic that would celebrate an agglomeration of global detail from which any sense of continuity and realism has been removed. For large collections. Mollie Brodsky, Rutgers Univ., New Brunswick, N.J.
