Dipping into the first pages of this novel, I think of my paternal grandmother bent over the type cases that lined the wall where a sofa might have been in the living-room-turned-newspaper-office of her home. She had the whole alphabet to select from as she formed the news of the day in the backward composing stick. Tokarczuk is the author picking and choosing among cosmic fragments of narrative, the cold type arranging itself in an infinite number of patterns in the composing mind of the reader.

    This book sounds like a hoot. Did you like it? (I’m sure you said on the phone last night, but parts of our conversation disappeared in a Benadryl blur . . . plus my mind was all in Missouri . . . .)
