The Tales reviewed at The Volta

The_Tales_Jessica_Bozek_thumbAt The Volta‘s blog, Sally McCallum reviews Jessica Bozek’s The Talesasking questions about the violence within metonymy, remembering, and the tales we tell, again and again:

I closed the book wondering if what we need is fewer stories, or fewer metaphors, really. Because those things make sense, but disaster doesn’t. This book is sequence marvelous tales, and of parodies of political speech and absurd bureaucratese, punctuated by the dry accounts of the Lone Survivor of his life in the aftermath.
