The Miradors

PublishAmerica, 2004 - 164 páginas
aThe Miradors is the most persuasive portrait of what we traditionally refer to as amadnessa that Iave ever read a frightening, hilarious and beautifully written, all at once. Mr. Sherman pulls up the curtain on this place we so unreflectively inhabit, and shows us all the dark matter our physics tell us is there, but that we can never see. And, he does so with so much laughter and humaneness that, well a] yes, indeed, things look a little different now.aA strong narrative line, but without the usual point A to point B to point C cause-and-effect progression. The Miradors is more impressionistic, and therefore more in keeping with the real nature of an experience that is, by definition, outside our usual causal progression.aA wonderful prose-poem a] a harrowing hell of a good ride.a ~ Richard Adams Carey, Author, Against the Tide and Ravenas Children
