- A to Z Stories of Life and Death
on Jan. 28, 2012
This book is amazing! I read many of them as they were written -- ONE A DAY -- during the 2011 April A-to-Z challenge. I understand some of those were left out, others were added and all were edited. The result is a collection of little jewels. Some are happy, some are sad, some are disturbing, but all are moving and exceptional. Beautiful language! Beautiful book!

A wonderful book! Whether a poem based on a Howard story, an Arabian Nights tale, a fable or a surreal comedy, each piece is intriguing, engaging and entertaining.

This is an amazing book. It begins as an ordinary woman starts her ordinary day. Then oddities crop up. They become more and more odd until.... You know how sometimes you're dreaming, and you suddenly REALIZE you're dreaming? That's what happened as I read this book. The character isn't dreaming, but the reader is.
Lee has done something I would never have thought possible, something that enchanted me and delighted me over and over: he has written a book that follows dream logic, a book that is both amorphous and coherent.
Buy this book, folks. You're welcome.
