Dies: A Sentence
|Availability:||In stock (8)|
DIES: A SENTENCE by Vanessa Place is a 117-page, one-sentence novel about the coils of language and war, unspooled in the dying breath of a pre- and post-scient World War I soldier. John Witte of the Northwest Review calls DIES, a marvel of sustained synergy, author Jim Krusoe describes the book as dizzyingly complex, compound, and full of miraculous side trips as well, and novelist Doug Nufer heralds DIES as a delightful tour de force of a hopelessly grim predicament. Place obliterates the line between victim and perpetrator, subject and object, rendering this human truth: in the death sentence of life, there is still beauty.
