It doesn't seem like much happens, but in poetic, elliptical passages, Greathouse makes you feel as though you've lived -- or, at very least, shared -- the life of this young woman. The writing is so vivid, so specific (and, at times, so brilliantly insightful) it almost transcends language and succeeds as a purely sensory experience, consistently engaging one's own memories.
Enthralling and mysterious, Greathouse has crafted a unique and ultimately quite moving first novella. I'm looking forward to reading her next work.
