  1. That is exciting. I read his “Other Electricities” and his stories have lingered in my mind ever since. I mean to get his “Vacationland” too.

  2. Other Electricies has stuck with me too, especially the recurring themes/powers/images that weave throughout the whole thing…I’m eager to see how Neck Deep will function as a whole, and I’m also eager to see if the same (or how the same) poetic visceral prose can work in another genre. And it is interesting that within both books he is playing with genre, each sounds like a formalist experiment…of course thre was plenty of substance and life in Other.
