I don’t know Definitely worth reading because it is uite different I just don’t know what to make of this one what I am supposed to take from it

    PDF/EPUB Aug 9 Fog PDF/EPUB ´ Aug 9 ePUB ↠ ↠ rightmark.co Aug 9 kindle, Aug 9 Fog PDFThis isn’t really a book is it? Not in a way that someone would spend money on it surely Technically yes it’s formatted and published as a book but realistically speaking it is 128 pages I was easily able to read in just under 15 minutes This is beyond spare beyond minimalistic beyond bare bones even It might work as a poetry volume possibly although it’s sparse even by those standards Mood wise again might work for poetry Otherwise possibly an experiment

    PDF/EPUB Aug 9 Fog PDF/EPUB ´ Aug 9 ePUB ↠ ↠ rightmark.co Aug 9 kindle, Aug 9 Fog PDFThis short book is what some people call an erasure project by Kathryn Scanlan At an estate sale she found a diary one of those five year diaries with room for a small amount of information for each of five years pertaining to a particular date written by a woman who was given the book to write in by younger relatives She was 86 when she began keeping it in 1968 72 When Scanlan found the diary it was headed to the trash; it was falling apart and yet something about it made her want to pick it up Maybe it's the impulse any of us might have for reading memoir or autobiography curiosity about how someone makes sense of of their lives Sometimes maybe it's voyeurism? At any rate she picked it up read it and reread it many

    PDF/EPUB Aug 9 Fog PDF/EPUB ´ Aug 9 ePUB ↠ ↠ rightmark.co Aug 9 kindle, Aug 9 Fog PDFI love experimental books ones that play with format and perspectives and such so when I read the description of this work I immediately went and got it from my library This is a uniue collection and rearrangement by the author of a real elderly woman's diary that spans 5 years From reading other reviews I'm not the only one who has struggled to classify this I feel like poetry might feel the closest to it but I'm not sure even then Prose poetry maybe? I enjoyed this and I agree with another reviewer that it almost feels wrong to rate this on a 5 star scale; it wasn't written to be a bookprose poetry after all These are words from a diary rearranged and presented in a new way by ScanlanI liked it I really did like it but something still did feel missing from it
