Altmann’s Tongue, by Brian Evenson

Categorized in:

altmanns tongue by brian evenson

An uninterrupted Evenson book can be a hard slog. Short stories interspersed with others’ writing is ideal. His best stories are compulsive, bizarre, surprisingly funny (see “Eye? in this volume), gruesome. Others, though, are too thick with the sluggish mental processes of his detail- and formality-obsessed characters. Which makes for tough reading.
