It’s what I think I’m seeing ithe angel holding a lamp at the walkway entrance, and then later, up nearer the house where the stairs start toward the entrance, nothing you could call a stoop, a baby one, what do you call it, a cherub? Like going in reverse, back in time.

Lucy Corin is writing like nobody else these days. Without getting all literary, it's a prose style bordering on poetry. But that's not an adequate description, it makes it seem all ethereal and comfortable, which I assure you, it is not. The heading of this review reflects that we don't really have the literary review skill set but that maybe those tired and jaded readers of fiction who have given up will appreciate the heads up from a fellow fiction-giver-upper-on.

Start with "The Entire Predicament" (we've had a harder time with "Everyday Psycho-Killers").

In no particular order, here are some highlights from the elusive, allusive, hilarious, dead-serious stories in The Entire Predicament:

`Mice' - lyrical ecstasy over the Siberian Tundra

`Incognito' - in which a television reporter takes off her wig

`Some Machines' - PostModern Times inside the machine

`Refrigerator' from `Some Machines' - how to live by the light of a fridge

`Rich People' - a postmodern folk tale about pate, the type you eat and throw away

These are just a few of my favorites. As Miles Raymond from 2004's Sideways might say of Pinot Noir, "oh its flavors, they're just the most haunting and brilliant and thrilling and subtle and... ancient on the planet." For the connoisseur - very highly recommended.
