Blogger Niamh Clune of [...] explains "metaphysical realism" in literature best: "In terms of modern metaphysical literature, writers such as Paolo Coelho, Herman Hesse, and Jean Paul Sartre weave philosophical concepts into simple stories to which most can relate. These stories make us think. They make us question the meaning of life. They ask us to reach beyond the world of tangible reality and allow soul into life. These days, modern metaphysical/visionary literature often crosses genres and enters into the little celebrated field of magic realism. In this genre, the supernatural is part of tangible reality; spirit and nature are interwoven, inseparable, and unquestioned, and the extraordinary is made ordinary. Metaphysical literature tells tales of the inner life. Usually these tales are told simply, in prose that reaches to express the beauty inherent in us and in the world about us. Its task is to give voice to soul and its yearning to transcend the suffering of everyday reality."
That's exactly what Tales of the Fiction House extracts. What makes Fiction House more like "metaphysical realism" versus "magical realism," (although encompassing elements of realistic settings invaded by magical content,) it upholds a philosophical tale of morality. It's a poetic elucidation to social and political awareness of American history with a whimsical twist.
The language of each character is rich with humor and bewitchingly imaginative. In my opinion a new American folklore has just been born with characters like Carper, Mariner, Turt, Mama Lucy, Laza BonesThibidioux, and the like. A must read for those who wish to expand their imagination and preconceived knowledge about satirical fiction.
