Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"One would call these lives adrift except that would suggest they once were safely moored and docked; in Lutz's world there is only ever the open sea of failed (non)relationships, with no land in sight, the characters' only rudder being the extreme care taken in the words they choose to render their own misery. In each of these stories, the lonely anonymity of a narrator's misfit existence vies with the glorious singularity of his or her discourse to offer a marvelous, raw tension. Partial List of People to Bleach is at once cruelly honest, precisely painful, and beautifully rendered." Brian Evenson

Review:

"Gary Lutz is the best writer you've never heard of. To certain stylists, he's a kind of prose god. Lutz...belongs to a category of sentence geniuses that includes Ben Marcus, Aleksandar Hemon, and David Foster Wallace." Christopher Frizzelle, The Stranger [Seattle]

Review:

"Searing realism...terribly exact...a matter for rejoicing." Lucy Daniel, The Telegraph [London]

Review:

"Despite its brevity and zine-ish format, Gary Lutz's bold and original new story collection feels like one of the season's biggest books....This thin chapbook is currently the best way to get a lump of Lutz. Savor it." Michael Miller, Time Out

Review:

"Gary Lutz is excellent. He writes some of the most interesting, subtle, oddly constructed sentences in contemporary lit." Dennis Cooper

Another great read from Lutz or should I say 3 reads, I read 3 times back to back. Nothing really to say about Lutz that hasn't been said, just read it. Thanks Sampsell(Future Tense) for publishing this.
