Lance Olsen's latest books, Theories of Forgetting (Fiction Collective 2) and [[ there. ]] (Anti-Oedipus Press), have received a great review in The Small Press Book Review. Here's a glimpse:
"Lance Olsen’s books Theories of Forgetting and [[ there. ]] are works of radically different type united by their convention-defying formats and their (sometimes uncomfortable) intimacy. Theories of Forgetting is a novel in two halves, two narratives that bisect the book horizontally, never letting you forget one while reading the other. [[ there. ]] is a book in fragments, echoing David Markson, bursts of observation and contemplation written while Olsen was at the American Academy in Berlin. Reading them together amplifies Olsen’s skill at constructing narratives in unexpected and innovative forms."
