Like the wave-filled foggy horizon of the sea, like a woman’s white arm, a gentle curve. This novel can put you in a catatonic torpor, a drug-induced haze near the point where you are about to overdose and die.

I’m a fly buzzing behind your ear, ma’am. A field of tomatoes, a dead moth, the night sky, a blood-smeared shard of glass all reveal hidden beauty and strange connection.
