RE NONE OF THIS IS REAL

Mellis somehow manages to make a seamless and entrancing collage of progressive concerns, broken-family storylines, and therapy-derived surrealism with a risky, imbricated, and near-constant just-off parataxis. Through an authentic, recognizable mix of u- and dystopias, Mellis traces lives we didn’t quite yet know we were living.

-- Eugene Lim


RE THE SPOKES

In lucid, utterly captivating prose, Miranda Mellis delivers a highly disciplined, deeply melancholy portrait of the living and the dead. I read it transfixed. It is a radiant piece of work.

-- Carole Maso


RE THE REVISIONIST

There's an uncanny lightness about Miranda Mellis's gliding techno-novella. It's slow and glimmery like steam punk--and wise about gender too. She's right up there (for me) with Bob Dylan, folk art, anime and all the kind and great animals and plants of the world. I love this book so much.

-- Eileen Myles


RE THE REVISIONIST

Caught somewhere in that nexus of living, observing and manipulating from which our current American malaise most convincingly reveals itself, the conflicted narrator of Miranda Mellis' taut story telescopulates to capture and possess a variety of lives from a distance. The Revisionist is at once a beautifully simple fable and a wonderfully lyrical apocalyptic tale. Though its motion seems at first Brownian, it manages almost because of this to get to where few books ever manage to go.

-- Brian Evenson
