I recently reviewed Blake Butler’s Sky Saw for The Collagist. A sample from the review is as follows:
Understand what you choose to understand but what Butler suggests is more important than what he’s trying to say: Plenty of books will outlive us; plenty of books already have. Books upon books conceal the personalities of the people that wrote them. These books become dangerous, spouting apocalyptic disgust and the acrid stench of death. Butler reveals the hidden depths of Sky Saw’s personality and makes it part of the book’s cadence. We see the book as entity, the dominant force in a world of people known less by name and more by number (e.g., Person 1180, 811, 2030).
