And Go Like This by John Crowley
Paperback – Small Beer Press – Nov 2022 – 352 pages
Either he has invented all this, or he is himself invented: and these are not two contradictory things but one thing.
Reading John Crowley’s stories is to see almost-familiar lives running parallel to our own, secret histories that never quite happened, memories that might be real or might be invented.
In the thirteen stories collected her, Crowley sets his imagination free to roam from a 20th century Shakespeare festival to spring break at a future Yale in his Edgar Award winning story “Spring Break”. And in the previously unpublished “Anosognosia” the world brought about by one John C.’s high-school accident may or may not exist.
