The voice narrating Carol Guess’ newest book is that of a playfully effusive but meticulous cataloguer of our darker inquiries and oddities, a suburban former dancer with the inner life and vision of an epic librettist. It is nothing short of exceptional, a rare breed of hybrid that works between the “flash” of short fiction and the swift bite of the lyric.
