"Within the psychic structure that's EVER, Blake Butler explores the way in which our bodies swell and agreement, going from dermis to deal with and again back. and how homes too scale back to slot us first like garments after which like dermis after which tighter nonetheless. the result's a wierd, visionary ontological dismemberment that takes you way past what you'd ever expect"--Brian Evenson.
"Blake Butler is a bold invigorator of the literary sentence, and the room-ridden narrator of his debut novella, EVER, nerves her approach right into a hallucinative ruckus of rousing originality"--Gary Lutz.
"In EVER--as in, indicating any time long ago or future--light is entropic; 'the sky may raise your epidermis off'; household rituals are anamorphotic brain fucks granting 'no go out method'; and doorways won't open even if you don't try..."--Miranda Mellis.
"From within the gentle I touched the sunshine. I knew the sunshine grew mould inside of me. Or. Or what. i couldn't think."
EVER is a narrative of dust and light-weight and homes and metaphysical shifts in unsleeping, shifts in physique and being and time. EVER is a narrative that leaves you feeling bruised and emotional and bigger than you have been before.
Blake Butler's sentences are frequently greater and extra wonderful than these of Lutz, McCarthy & to these of Williams and Lish. i think Butler's sentences have a extra competitive sonic central. As you learn, you actually are (to use one in every of EVER's widespread phrases) slushed alongside through sentences seriously marked by way of S's. And while Butler reverts to a sonically boring sentence, frequently containing the main poignant/banal comment, the phrases hit you that a lot tougher, due to the influence of all contained at the back of that sentence slamming ahead into you. And while the tone and composition of the sentences and paragraphs shifts, you are feeling it. It's a visceral swap.
