I spend a lot of time (and money) looking for books that step outside conventional structure. I know there are a lot of them around but at the same time, there is no genre, no identifying marks that lead to books of this nature. I read across fiction and non-fiction and poetry, hoping for something that mixes them all together into something new.
So it’s nice to come across a book that wears this sort of heart on its sleeve and which gives me some more clues to the language of this space.
‘Formally experimental – mini plays, time-stamped fragments, prose-as-prayer – in work that’s political, comic and genuinely original.’
‘Foley joins a cohort of contemporary authors whose work seems dissatisfied with narrative conventions. What happens when we blow them open?’
Ordered in confidence but not read yet.
