“Time doesn’t pass in New England, the library just gets bigger. Reading Caroline Knox one is grateful for her idiosyncratic guidance through the selva of text exfoliated (sometimes) and juxtaposed collagistically at other times. The desire that moves the concentrate sol of these word engines is one more powerful in our world now than it was when the world was smaller, namely ‘I have to have a book to really read.’ I really read this one, and felt time spinning, not passing.”—Andrei Codrescu
Witty, compassionate, and restless, Knox fearlessly takes on NASCAR, numismatics, and canned Spam—and makes it all fascinating.
