The Stranger Reviews Doug Nufer’s By Kelman Out of Pessoa

Paul Constant, at The Stranger, investigates the story behind the story of Doug Nufer’s latest book By Kelman Out of Pessoa:

There are so many viewpoints here, so many puppets watching each other dance around a stage constructed from fiction and reality, that we can’t help but wonder about the man who makes them all dance. In Kelman, you get a better look at Nufer than you’ve ever had before, because the entire book carries with it an unwritten memoir of Nufer’s own experience at Emerald Downs. You want to see even more, but you can’t; the wonder of Doug Nufer is that he contains so many perspectives, you can’t look at him directly without your attention being directed somewhere else.
