Joseph McElroy


Powell's City of Books (map) Downtown
Mon., Jan. 31, 7:30 p.m. 2011


Things are happening in Joseph McElroy's Night Soul and Other Stories, but in the school of McElroy, these occurrences are merely points, which are connected to other points within the stories, and the stories are not about what happens and what will happen next, but what the mind is thinking, examining, noticing on the nightstand, during, after, and before these points. McElroy understands there are those who think in the present, those who really feel the wrongs done to them, but he writes of those who've always felt they are everywhere on the timeline at once, grieving and grieved. These complexities, collectively, make for what is an excellent and full read. A. WOLFE
